Just spent an hour on the cushion and I have realised how even when meditating I spend an awfully long time trying to control my thoughts.
As the meditator it can be very easy to fall into the trap of asking yourself "am I meditating yet?" when all the thoughts we have or the feelings we feel we become attached to by trying to be un-attached and that I believe is resistance.
Most of my sessions are like this and it is very rarely that I can experience complete non-attachment as I still carry with me many ideals of what meditation should be. From now on I think my approach is gonna be to just go with the flow. Screw meditating I'm just gonna carry on sitting and breathing. If I'm attached so what? If I'm not attached so what?
I'd say one of the biggest obstacles of learning Buddhism is actually un-learning Buddhism.
