I have done the "bell meditation" daily for awhile now. I find it very hard so far to still the chatter in my mind whilch intrudes over and over. I find myself obsessing about the chatter, adding yet another layer of mental noise. I wonder if anyone has found some secrets or tricks to get more than a few seconds of open access.to allow anything to arise.other than humdrum thoughs that occupy my mind when I'm not trying to meditate. Fasting? Exercise? Prolonging the meditation?
