Mediation And Distraction

I recently started using the Sam Harris “Waking Up” ‘meditation app. I know what you’re thinking “here we go, another evangelical meditator”. Truth is, I like it - and it may not be for you.

A thought arose after this mornings session. The idea that in mediation you aren’t actually doing anything. That you in fact ceasing to do the thing that keeps you distracted - lost in thought, unaware of what’s appearing in each moment.
