Meditation as Weeding
As you're weeding, a rodent or worm might pop up and scare the bejeezus out of you but you just keep doing it anyway.
As you're meditating, a difficult, repulsive or appealing thought or emotion might spring up out of nowhere but you just sit through it all and keep doing it anyway.
Over time, once the weeds start to get cleared away, you begin to see what you're left with, which is pretty cool.
And you notice what can grow from there.
