Working with Thoughts

It is helpful at the beginning of your meditation practice to free yourself from the idea that in order to meditate properly you must have no thoughts. Instead, establish a different relationship with your thoughts so that over time they can fade more effortlessly into the background. All meditators have thoughts arising during their practice–it’s what you do with them that matters.

– Bob Sharples, “Do the Thoughts Ever Stop?”

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!

All my best,
