I've just started the 16 month Taoist Meditation course and am now in my second month. I'm finding that I can focus on various parts of my body quite well and for a reasonable length of time, but only without counting! As soon as I start counting, whether in my head or with my fingers, my focus is gone before I even notice it's going to do that. The furthest I've come before I've spaced out is 3. (And I've been practicing quite frequently.) This doesn't seem to depend on which part of me I'm focusing on, just the fact that I have to count seems to be enough to do that. Has anyone had a similar problem, and could give me some advice, please?
Thanks in advance,
