In this interesting video, Venerable Chodron of Sravasti Abbey talks about being sensitive to one’s own mind and knowing how to work with mental energies. Some examples she mentions include knowing how to make the mind more alert when it feels sluggish, knowing how to settle it if it’s too excited, and knowing how to steer alertness towards meaningful activities.

Her main emphasis is on becoming skillful in working with the mind, instead of getting into “battle” situations where one forces the mind into things.
