Most beginners to meditation believe that you have to experience total inner silence and that the presence of any thoughts mean they are failing. This belief is false. What you should try to do at first is to reduce your thoughts.
If you can reduce your thoughts by about 20 to 30 percent, you will still reap the benefits and feel more calm and relaxed.
Of course, the ultimate goal in meditation is complete inner silence but this takes a lot of practice and even experienced Meditators minds get lost in thoughts on occassion.
Meditation is like learning to ride a bike…the more you practice, the more experienced you will become. And like a bike, once mastered it will then take you on your own personal journey into inner peace.
