Eddie,

I think i am searching for the "silent thought" youve described... the contemplation portion is where i feel i get stuck. I find that i catch myself analyzing the source of the emotion for longer periods of time than the actual emotion lasted... above ive mentioned a double edged sword when it comes to my analytical approach to things... but i feel like there is definitely some sort of fear or memory that continues to generate these unwanted emotions... do you have any specific meditations that have worked well to bring these fears and causes to light? Honestly, if i can work out how to bring them into the light, the light will take care of the rest!

Warrior to Warrior,

JJ
