Thank you. Nicely stated. It surprised me that people would say “I’m no good at that.” I hadn’t thought that would be the reason for not doing some meditation but it makes much sense. My own limiting thought was from the other side. Originally my goals were wrong. Too much reading early in my life made the goal strictly attaining satori or something like that. In recent years it is something that helps me. Lately I’ve begun to realize that focusing on breath or chant to gain control of my monkey mind is also beginning to be silly. It can be used against itself more easily sometimes by just watching where it goes. And not being bothered.

So making room for the chaos is a place that I know. Yes.
