Meditating on thoughts

Last week we started learning how to meditate on thoughts, and discovered that it’s quite an interesting exercise as usually we are not particularly aware of our thoughts.  The instruction we heard in the video clip was to ‘look at the thoughts directly’ so we had a wee discussion about what that means.  We came up with a couple of ideas on this: ‘not adding commentary’, and ‘not getting caught up’, though we found that easier to say than do.  We also heard that two things can happen when we look directly at our thoughts  1. we start to see some space between us and our thoughts, a bit like watching television (we’re not actually in the TV), or 2. thoughts immediately dissolve.
