Quotes from this episode:

"Understand that you are an observer of your thoughts and your own complexity will become less mysterious.” - Pilar Angel

“The most complex system that exists is your own mind.” - Pilar Angel

"Life consists only of moments, nothing more than that. So if you make the moment matter, it all matters. You can be mindful, you can be mindless. You can win, you can lose. The worst case is to be mindless and lose. So when you’re doing anything, be mindful, notice new things, make it meaningful to you, and you’ll prosper."Ellen Langer

2. Allow, the experience to be there, just as it is

3. Investigate, with kindness

4. Natural awareness, which comes from not identifying - not judging it
