Where does an understanding of truth come from? Ajahn Brahm describes how it comes from the contemplation which is based on stillness, because when you are still you can see deeply and it does not come from thinking; if you think too much you only see the surface and superficial. Hence to really understand things deeply and find their true meaning you must train your mind to be still, so that it can penetrate deeply into the nature of things. Ajahn points out that it’s not what your taught which makes you wise, it is what you see that makes you wise.
