About that mental "noise"

It's not unusual for people to quit meditating because they think it somehow makes their minds "worse". Not so! Here's what really happens:

For those who are not used to paying close attention to their minds, meditation can be a disturbing experience. It will be disturbing to hear the ‘noise’ in your mind, to which you have never previously opened your ears. In reality, meditation does not bring you any disturbance; it just makes noticeable what is already there.
