The point is not to try to get rid of thoughts, but rather to see their true nature.
It’s helpful to always remind yourself that meditation is about opening and relaxing with whatever arises, without picking and choosing.
Like clouds in a big sky, all our thoughts are given the space to appear. If one hangs on, let it dissolve back into the big sky.

Amber Lotus is blessed with the opportunity to attend a Pema workshop in New York following the National Stationary Show this week. We are looking forward to an inspiring weekend.
