How to stop thinking when you meditate?

There is no language when you meditation. in the other word, meditation itself is the language. Everyone is able to relax no matter how good or bad they are…no matter how rich or poor they are.

Silence in meditation doesn’t care your gender, your race , your age, your nationality, you culture, your political ideology and your nonsense degree from university.

Most monks in Thailand teach people to “identify” your breathe. When you breath in, think of the word “phut”. When you breath out, think of the word “thoo”. “Phut” and “thoo”. Of course, they tell us that is the trick for our mind. To bring our mind to “focus” on the only two words.

However, if people clings to this “method”, it will be problem and you cannot really meditate.

First, there is no such thing as “phut” and “thoo” or even “Ohm”. You weren’t born with these words. To be nose, it take me for couple weeks to throw these stupid word and just watch the flow of inhaling and exhaling.

Language is the repetition of your mind when the meditation is not!

So, first. You don’t need to count 1 2 3 or say any word during meditation.

Now, let’s understand your mind. Mind is the source of the stream of thoughts like the forest on the mountain that is the source of the stream of the river. If you can see how beautiful of the river stream, you can see the beauty of the stream of thought also.

Watch not drown.

At first, you will found yourself that you turn to “think” as always during meditation. That is normal. Please do not feel irritated with this phenomenon.

When you found yourself that you think, congratulation. Now you can watch it.

It is like you are in the pool. When you find yourself that you are in the pool, you just bring yourself out of it not feel angry why I am in the pool.

That is funny, isn’t it?
