Don’t Stop Too Early

Once you’ve worked through all, or even most, of your emotions, it’s very easy to convince yourself to stop meditating. Of course you don’t want to spend more time meditating than is actually necessary to bring you benefits, but it’s very easy to stop while you still have emotions to work through. A good test of if you have more emotional shit to process is, “have I processed through anything, or gotten hung up on any emotions in the past hour?” If yes, keep meditating.

Really, you need to finish learning all the skills in Part II, and Part III if it applies to you (read the intro post to Part III to find out), before you stop meditating.

I have stopped meditating because I thought I’d finished working through all my shit, about six times. The first five times, it didn’t work, because I didn’t have all the skills from Part II yet. The last time, it did. I still spend a little time trying to figure out what certain emotions are telling me (link to last post on Part II), but not meditating per se.
