Right, today, Tuesday and the day started with a half hour meditation interrupted by a single persistent thought! All about me. Ah, transcending the 'me' as well as the thoughts is the whole point of meditation and it is about the only place where at least the 'me' in its aggravated and aggravating form is seen in a clear spotlight.
I went back to the mantra.
Meditation is about equity of being and if the equity is shaken, more meditation is needed. Of course, when a really good thought comes along in the peace and quiet of the practice, it is very easy to mistake it as a really important thought, maybe even divine intervention. For sure, it isn't! its just a better thought!
