The Nechung Oracle Program Thought for the Moment...

    Don't become easily discouraged.  If you never try to go beyond that
stage of initial discouragement because there are thoughts arising in your
meditation, you are never going to have the true experiences of meditation.
You need to go beyond that initial stage.  You need to keep trying.  If you
keep making that effort to go beyond that initial discouragement, you will
arrive at the experience of not getting caught up in your thoughts and mental
events.
    Sometimes you may even observe an increase in the frequency of thoughts.
When that happens, don't get discouraged.  My enlightened master Jigme
Phuntsok Rinpoche says:
    "One sign that your meditation is beginning to be effective is that both
subtle thoughts and obvious thoughts become more noticeable than before.  This
is not a bad sign; it's a good sign.  When water rushes in a strong river
current, you don't see the fish or rocks beneath the rapids.  But when the
current slows and the water becomes clear, then you can see the fish, the
rocks, and everything below the surface distinctly.  Similarly, if you never
pay attention to your mind, and your thoughts and emotions are uncontrolled,
you don't even know how many thoughts go by.  But when your mind becomes
more stable and calm, you begin to see your thoughts more clearly.  Don't be
discouraged.  Take heart at this sign.  Don't hold yourself too loosely or
too tightly.  Maintain your meditation in the right way without concern and
gradually your meditation experience will increase and stabilize."
    Remember: Do not follow the past.  Do not anticipate the future.  Remain
in the present moment.  Leave your mind alone.  Those four simple,
straightforward instructions give us a chance to go beyond our mental events
and, eventually, to experience the natural state of mind.
