Yoga Sutra 1.6

1.6 The states of the mind are; correct understanding, misunderstanding, imagining, dreamless sleep, and memory.

It’s a relief to know that these are the natural states of the mind. Sometimes I feel like the states of my mind are; insanity, jealousy, anger, frustration, etc… Knowing this gives me the freedom to classify those feelings as misunderstanding. I don’t have to identify with my misunderstanding. I can observe it, and move on.

Today while observing the states of my mind, I will observe and let go while classifying what state of mind I am currently living in.
