First- the discipline to stop and collect ourselves – the principles of concentration.
Second- the ability and repetition of seeing into the simple functions of the heart and mind. Seeing how we live with, create, and let go of tension and anxieties. The fundamentals of insight.
As we cultivate concentration (samatha in Pali), we develop purification, tranquility and equanimity of mind and heart. These qualities prepare the ground for penetrating insight into the nature of existence.
