875: How to Meditate: Learning How to Observe Your Thoughts
Beginners to meditation have a difficult time seeing their thoughts as objects, as things. They either become frustrated that they haven't been able to rid their minds of pervasive thoughts, or they follow a thought, adding emotion along with the journey. Ultimately, as beginners become more adept, they will train their minds to see thoughts as things, to view them objectively. Today is the perfect start to that goal.
What you will Learn in this episode:
- What to do with pervasive, intrusive thoughts

- How to limit frustration
