Do thoughts disturb you when you start meditating? Mostly Yes. Everybody can relate to thoughts popping up during a meditation session. At times the mind is very restless. Thoughts may be mind-boggling in number and range. Sometimes even tears may flow during meditation. These distracting thoughts do not allow us to live fully in the present moment. But it is natural. The mind is always active. To rise above these thoughts, we can follow Thich Nhat Hanh teachings. He says, "feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. conscious breathing is my anchor".
Observe your breath at the turning point. Let the thoughts and emotions fly away.
