The Thought Pump Model for Meditation

This document discusses meditation and the natural process of the mind. When meditating, one focuses the mind until reaching a state of ideal focus, which slowly fades as thoughts start rushing in and the mind jumps between thoughts. This breaks the meditation, so the person refocuses their mind and reaches the focus point again. This process of focusing the mind and having thoughts interrupt is natural and meditation serves to train the mind to break the thought patterns and strengthen focus.
