It’s only meditation when there are two minds:
Knowing-noting mind and observing mind.
If there is only one mind, ‘I’ is always there.
The object is not the dhamma,
The dhamma is the mind
That is being aware.

Another source of stories from Mahasi Sayadaw is his wonderful book on the Sallekha Sutta:
