While sitting in meditation yesterday it again came to me that I’m just that – lost in thoughts. We all are.
This expression has a whole new meaning for me now that I’m experiencing my mind in meditation. I now understand why in old texts our mind is being compared to a wild horse. It is never resting, always shaken by incoming thoughts, twitched and pulled by attachment to them. In all this frantic activity we are getting lost. The present moment is getting lost, because the thoughts inevitably run away towards the future or dwell on the past.
It is so hard to just sit.
