What Happens When You Can’t Let Go Of A Thought?
We’re often told, when being taught or having meditation described, to let go of our thoughts. Let them pass by, don’t cling to them, let them be like clouds in the sky. This is a great way to describe meditation, and it’s a relatively accurate one as well.
But what if you can’t let go of a thought? What if there is a thought or image that is persistent? What if it keeps coming back over and over again, and keeps trying to force you to pay attention to it?
Maybe you should.
