I want to become more aware, and less tied up in my thoughts. I've been reading transcripts of K's talks, but find I am far too easily distracted. The same problem arises when I intend to be quiet and still, and to just 'be'.

I've been wondering about trying to take a few days to go on retreat - perhaps here. Have other people done similar, and if so have you found it helpful?

Does anyone have advice on how I can let go of all the thoughts that keep buzzing around my mind, despite my attempts to gently shoo them away? I'm still very much a 'beginner' on this path, so please word any replies simply so I can understand!

Thank you for reading.

It is futile to waste time over what another is thinking, or what you imagine he is thinking...

Understand present is the reality, and without condemnation or jusrtification watch the self centrdness which again if you underrstand they induce the thoughts, and this awareness will bring in the tranquility without effort.
