Remedy
"The Buddha’s teaching is aimed at liberation from suffering – the way out is through complete abandonment of clinging. Basic remedy is to pause – this is just an organic system operating, there’s nothing wrong with you. It’s not personal. Don’t follow the message of mind consciousness, follow the direct experience of the body."
  • Ajahn Sucitto with one of my very favorite concise summaries of the dharma.

Thich Nhat Hanh - Let Go and Be Free
Talk on Youtube

Recently got back into meditation after years thinking I just couldn't hack it. I only recently learned that meditation in many traditions actually follows a concrete series of stages, the later stages of which are apparently inexpressible experiences.

This talk has a very clear outline of the very first stages, and what it means to meditate.

Plus just listen to dude's voice and tell me you're not more relaxed.
