"With meditation, you will benefit most by not attaching onto the results of your practice.  Just meditate, then let it go.  After a particular session, if you feel the need to reflect upon or process what happened during your meditation, then make a contract with yourself - a gentle agreement, that upon completion of your reflection you will let go of whatever you reflected on.  Stick to it!  Personal contracts only have meaning when you uphold the integrity of that contract.  Just remember that meditation is the art of letting go, not the art of holding on.  With meditation, if you feel a need to hold on to something, then hold onto a consistent practice"  – Dr. Dean Telano
