Ajahn Cittapalo reminds us that meditation is not about stopping the mind nor fixating on a single thing. Rather we should be kindly aware of what is happening with our mind. Practice just watching what is happening. Don't try to change it, simply acknowledge it and let it go. As we practice this more often, the inner monologue occurs less. Allowing us to enjoy a peaceful relaxing meditation.
The group, having all meditated previously, meditated for thirty minutes in silence.
After meditation Ajahn drew our attention to how happy we feel after meditation and how good the general feeling.
