I went to a teaching & meditation last night and the first meditation involved the teacher telling us to see the mind like the ocean and we were to swim deep into it, watching the waves get further away - the waves were our thoughts.
Obviously, we're not to take this literally (or maybe I should have...?) but I definitely couldn't get my head around it. It was probably the most uncomfortable meditation I've done in a while.
Is there anyone who has tried this, or similar & can give me some advice for next time, please?
