When the mind is still untrained, there is only a tiny gap between its contents and the way it manifests externally.

“When the mind is still untrained, there is only a tiny gap between its contents and the way it manifests externally. When we are angry, we just manifest anger. When we are upset we manifest this immediately. We are just acting out our mind state. But after practising for a while, we begin to appreciate that although we may not yet be able to act like a saint, at least we have a teaching that enables us to restrain the mind. In other words, we have a choice. We have an option.”

~Ajahn Sundara
