Clear your mind of all thoughts. When you catch yourself thinking, note "I am thinking" and then return to your point of concentration. I recommend reading yoga for yellowbellies from www.deoxy.org.

a guide to meditation is an oxymoron. To try and not to think is an oxymoron. Do you see where this is going?

I think our friend Grav has realized something that you may find interesting

the point is to focus your thoughts and quiet down the internal dialogue, and feel things rather than telling yourself how they feel.

Let the mind be still. See things how they are without conceptions or notions.

I just lay there and kinda let my thoughts kinda slow down and stop flowing so fast, and kinda come to a hault...Then sleep.

I meditated and slept two times today.  :smile:
