Professor Hakim: “Lesson 1. Observe your thoughts and feelings, but don’t judge them. They are not telling you what is really going on. They tell you old stories. Don’t try to stop thinking or stop feeling. For they are going to shout harder. Don’t try to deny them, for they will start screaming. Observe and be with them.”

Jonah: “But this is hard. I have so many thoughts, I want to crawl out of my head!”

Professor Hakim: “Nobody ever said that this was easy. Every new beginning brings challenges. You have let your thoughts rule you for a long time. It is time to become the master of your own mind. However no one reached mastery at a first attempt. So keep at it, my boy.”
