Day 9: Cheating

It occurs to me that I've been cheating over the last few days.

After I started mediation last week, I quickly became frustrated with the concept of letting go of my thoughts. I wanted to make sure that they went to good use so I turned to prayer. I think I believed like it was a way to control the outcome of my thoughts.

But according to How Not to Be Afraid of Your Life letting go of my thoughts is the point.
