It is very important to try to develop your shamatha, your practice of meditation, and to understand it. Shamatha is the point where you begin to behave like a buddha—a real one, not a fake one. Once this kind of unconditioned mindfulness happens, you are here and you are automatically sane. You do not need to try to do anything in particular. You are here, ready for anything the other yanas, or parts of your journey, may suggest or demand. It is very important to be Buddha-like and to understand that to be so is very simple and easy.
