How to Stop Thinking in Meditation

by Alan Klima

When You Meditate, Which of

The Three Kinds of Thoughts

Bug You the Most?

 

Basically, there are three kinds of thoughts in meditation and life.

1. The Thought-Storm


One is the kind that grabs you, shakes you around, that keeps coming back at you,
and takes you round and round and it’s like you are helpless
and it won’t go away and it won’t stop taking you into stress and bad moods,
lack of sleep and difficult emotions.

And that leads to more problems like health issues, strained relationships, and
a general lack of fulfillment in life.

2. The Chatter Racket


The second is just little chatter here and there, on and on. The mind naturally picks
things up and puts them down rapidly with curious attention. Even if it’s not interesting,
the thinking mind will still chew on it!

These kind of thoughts just make it difficult to settle down.

3. The Servant


And the third is when the thinking mind knows it’s place, as your servant to provide things
like creativity, fun, exploration and interest. After all, our whole way of life through the ages
has depended on thinking.

The truth is, there is nothing wrong with thinking in itself. It’s how you relate to it that matters.

THE BIG ONE…

What most people who have questions about meditation will say is that the real Thought-Storms are the big problem.

You want to meditate to get rid of these Thought-Storms, but the Thought-Storms are what seem to get in the way!

And maybe all the chatter makes it worse. (Type Two)

And you may even have questions about the third kind, like, is all thinking bad in meditation?

Are we supposed to not think? Isn’t thinking a good thing sometimes? (Type Three)

So let’s straighten all this out right now

so that you can get right to your meditation
and right out of being tossed around by thoughts.

Let’s start with an easy one, number 3: Should we be trying not to think?

Once you understand thought, it loses it’s power over you.
Actually, meditation is the way to truly understand thought.

When you understand in your bones and soul what you really are

thought loses its ability to stick in you, and you can use it whatever way you please.

In truth, you are the master and thought is your servant.

But somehow the relationship got reversed. It’s because thought has for some time

been stealing your energy, your belief, concern and attention that it appears to be so strong.

But all you need do is take your power back from it.

And that is very simple actually– give your attention a sweeter song to listen to.

That sweeter “song” is in you, here, and you can access it.

When you see your true position in relation to thought it’s power over you is on it’s way out.

You can tap into this sweeter song inside you

using a natural system of meditation that doesn’t make you struggle against yourself.

You and thinking will first stand in a respectful distance. Then, thinking will

be your servant, as it was meant to be.

But first you’ll need to understand the other two kinds of thought.

 

Type Two– the chatter and idle thinking

This Chatter Racket is a tricky one, because it seems like it’s a big problem.

But actually, it is absolutely no barrier to your freedom from thinking.

The truth is that this sort of thinking is going on almost non-stop.

The attention is picking up this and that constantly and chewing it over

Then skipping to the next thing

It’s just scanning, on the lookout.

People who haven’t really understood thought, or haven’t understood meditation deeply

might tell you that you have to try and get to no thought at all

and that you should stop thinking in meditation.

But the truth is it’s going on almost constantly. It’s what the mind does.

Temporary breaks are just temporary.

The fact is that Type Two thoughts are no problem because we don’t have a lot of

emotional investment in them.

The only way to make them into a big problem is to believe they are big problem.

Then we start supplying them some of our power.

So with Type Two just let it be. Let it roll.

That’s not your business and not what you need to focus on.

When you understand thought, you will know exactly what to focus on,

and it doesn’t even require a lot of focus.

You simply need to recognize your freedom from stormy thoughts,

which brings us naturally to…

 

And, now Type One: You Can’t Snap Out of Thinking

Well actually you can.

The problem is that people are going about meditation all wrong.

People promise that you can change your brain with meditation, but their promises don’t come true.

 

Why is that?

The thing is, you’re not just your brain.

And even if you were just a brain, the brain is not a machine. But everywhere you look that is what they are teaching you:

To do repetitive “brain changing” actions that treat you like you are robot,

and are difficult to keep up in the long run.

How do you stick with meditation?

The answer is simple:

By not being able to help doing it because you love it so much.

The way meditation is taught today is as if we were machines
doing robotic actions.

Or we were just brains, with no bodies, dreams, desires…

or longing for Truth and Freedom.

There is another way to meditate that doesn’t cause the mind to wander endlessly in thoughts
out of boredom or from forcing it in unnatural ways.

Everywhere you look there is another mindfulness study that proves how it changes your brain and benefits your health.

Meditation is shown to help with difficult emotions and over-thinking, and is proven to be one of the best things you can do to increase your sense of well-being, connection with other people, your creativity and flow in life.

But what if there was so much more under the surface?
There is a natural meditation practice that can benefit much more than your brain,
to root you deeply in your awakening being so that you could snap out of thinking in an instant,
let difficult emotions pass through you,
and experience fulfillment and well-being in every part of your life.

What if meditation could stay with you throughout your life, because you can no longer be uprooted from your nature?

Meditation must be aligned with what your heart truly wants
