When we don’t meditate passing thoughts are no problem, but when we are meditating we want to have no passing thoughts! So when you’re not meditating, even though there are passing thoughts you feel very relaxed; but when you’re meditating you can’t relax because of the passing thoughts! Aren’t we funny? See what we are doing in the name of meditation.
Please make friends with your thoughts, please make friends with your emotions, please make friends with your sensations. I can’t understand why meditators hate their passing thoughts! Poor thoughts!
