Working with our thoughts - the conditions required for it

You say you have difficulty meditating. Why is that? It is because you have still not fully understood that each moment in life is not isolated but linked to all previous moments. So you must take care to prepare conditions, so that when the time for meditation comes you are able to do some real work with your thoughts. Suppose you have had an argument with someone. The next day when you want to meditate you will be endlessly mulling over your grievances and settling scores with that person. Instead of feeling detached and managing to raise yourself to the soul and spirit realms, you will be stuck on the ground, totally preoccupied with your arguments of the previous day. The same old story will keep repeating itself for this or that reason, and you will never be able to meditate. So, let’s be clear about this. You can achieve a great deal with thought, but only if you realize that, as each moment of your life is linked to all the previous ones, the work of thought, like all other work, requires preparation.
