From Sayadaw Tejaniya, a very profound teacher whose own struggles with depression started him on the spiritual path. He can say really complex things in only a few words. Try this:
A meditation student told Sayadaw her meditations were deeply unpleasant because she had to face a torrent of random thoughts, distracting fantasies and harsh self-judgments. "Do you want it to stop?" Sayadaw asked her. "Yes!" she said. "That's the problem," he said.
