A simply excellent book that has one questioning what one has learned about how to work with one's thoughts in meditation.

Zero stars. The author believes we should allow a space for our disruptive thoughts during meditation. He thinks we should get to know our thoughts, yet he criticizes the Buddha's 5 methods for getting to know our thoughts--the nerve! I feel he never gave any substantive method for knowing our thoughts, i.e. the thoughts that arise during meditation.

I was excited to find this book. My thoughts dominate my attempts at mediation and I thought I might have found a solution. I listened to this book on audible. However, I am still left with the 'how to' question and it seemed to strongly advocate finding a meditation instructor to work out 'how to'. A bit disappointed do I just sit and think (which would be easy) or not. I don't want to engage a 'guru' to sort this out for me.

On page 26. Not sure if will finish.
