Meditation is a process of elimination.
Sitting in meditation is a simple process of noticing what is there that you do not need, letting that go, and moving on to the next layer. Amazingly, it seems that there are infinite layers (or at least very many) and so the process never ends.
Sometimes I have a sense of getting better at the process and getting sparser in layers but that is an illusion because it may come about from noticing that the layers that are shed are subtler and subtler and yet just the next instance a huge layer comes into view and I am astounded that I hadn’t noticed it before.
