"There is no need to believe or disbelieve your thoughts - just don't enter anything. They don't distract you - you get distracted. Nothing exists in itself as a distraction - it is you who get distracted. Why?" Mooji
Like every habit , the habit of disconnecting our mind from our spirit by distraction is hard to break. Meditation is the practice of choosing not to be distracted. There is no need to fight your thoughts, we can choose to let them go.
