But the mind can be silent. One can sit down and pay attention, right here, right now. One can notice, be aware of what is. And naturally, the mental images, the internal dialogue, the desires and fears, all quiet down

One self : You forgot to mention to be aware of your toes.
You can temporary make your mind quite through concentration , that is the trick of the mind. You can't be attentive because you don't know what it is . You can only be aware that you are inattentive and ignorant and still that may not lead to attention.

Becoming aware of your toes would be a great feat!

The reality or fact is that we are wishful thinking which has no value . We think that through tricks of the mind we will subdue the gap between the thinker and thought. Tricks of the mind will only strengthen the self or thought..
