Yogi: I’m meditating for the first time. I’m aware of the breath during sitting meditation and when thinking mind arises, I can see the mind going here and there and around.
Sayadaw: The mind is not going around. It’s the attention mind paying attention to one object after another. Paying attention is also a mind activity; it is good to know that the mind is paying attention to this object and that object.
For the new yogi, he thinks that the mind is going around, but actually it’s a different mind, one after another.
