Meditation Laws

Master my attention won't focus
My thoughts overwhelm me
Teach me the Meditation Laws

The first law is Do not try
Try or don't try, master,
I fail just the same.

Second is like it, Have no goal.
Master, do you mean that I
Shouldn't want to meditate?

Third makes it clear, Be of resolve pure.
Resolve to what? To not try?
To have no goal? Master, why?

Fourth, remember to only breathe.
As long as I live I will,
Waiting for enlightenment still.

Fifth, Still thoughts but do not avoid,
Ahhh, Master, should that be my goal?
Should I try not to think, with resolve pure?
