Meditation - Getting Out of Your Own Way

Yale researcher Judson Brewer on How to Get Out of Your Own Way (and the Brain Science Behind It).  The reminder is to let go of those waves of thought arising and stay relaxed with the body (and mind).

I was reminded of the title of Alan Watts autobiography, In My Own Way, which most people would think of as an egoistic statement in the same vein as Frank Sinatra's song "My Way".  But Watts is referring to the same thing as Brewer, that with our wandering minds (our Default Mode Network), we end up getting in our own way.
