Yogis need to understand the value of awareness, not the value of the experience. Appreciate that there is awareness; don’t complain about the experience, about what is happening.
Every time you notice a small defilement arising, what happens? If you notice, the defilement stops.
(But because what we often notice in the mind is unpleasant and suffering, the mind resists the experience, forgetting that it’s the awareness that we are developing, not the experience.)
The first thing to keep in mind when meditating is that we’re not trying to make the defilement disappear. The first thing is that the defilement is not 'me', that the defilement is nature (a natural process – whatever is practiced again and again shows itself naturally). This information must come first.
Good quality of mind and bad quality of mind is nobody. It is nature. When you think the defilement is you that is why you don’t want to see.
(After setting the idea right, we can watch this natural phenomenon.)
