Sounds frustrating! Look at these feelings. Is there a 'self' that 'experiences frustration' or is it more like a story about frustration, about an imagined entity that is frustrated, plus uncomfortable energetic sensations (possibly around the body) ?Dealing with difficult people for example: I want them to be more cooperative however that is not the current reality. The wanting them to be cooperative has no bearing on the fact that they are not....
Thanks for the clarification.I was referring to my expression "the big scheme of things" - it seems to be an insight into how the mind has been trained to work....that there IS a big scheme of things and, if there is, it has to be something complex and elaborate
Yes and thinking of that, have you tried looking at the gap or space between the end of one thought and the beginning of the next one? It's worth trying to see what the experience is like.Agreed - it's like beating yourself up in meditation over a wandering mind vs. noticing that the mind has wandered and gently bringing it back.
