Don’t become easily discouraged. If you never try to go beyond that stage of initial discouragement because there are thoughts arising in your meditation, you are never going to have the true experiences of meditation. You need to go beyond that initial stage. You need to keep trying. If you keep making that effort to go beyond that initial discouragement, you will arrive at the experience of not getting caught up in your thoughts and mental events.
— Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche
