||I *knew* they weren't true but they would keep coming and it really bothered me.
This is a common problem when you start meditating to deal with a problem in your life.
||When I first started having panic attacks, my problem was that I would get wrapped up in and believe the anxious thoughts I was having.
||Now imagine responding with frustration, anger, and resistance, as you battle to get rid of it and keep it at bay.
||Accusations of dangerous insanity is serious stuff.
||May feel weird at first but after a while you'll almost smile at them, and as they stop bothering you, you'll stop resisting them, and they'll disappear
||And being upset about a bad session or about a lack of "progress" is still grasping.
||You can note that because you are stressed, you will have negative and worried thoughts.
||Or still suffer negative effects?
||Is that right?
Unfortunately, there's still a stigma in the West against meditation and a stereotype that it's for losers and hippies.
||I meditated 10-20 mins a day for about 60 days in a row, until a bad shroom trip left me too traumatised to continue.
I haven't meditated for about six months now.
