For example, people who meditate. How do you clear your mind? I can't do it! When I try to think of nothing I'm actually thinking about trying to think of nothing, leading to me thinking of something. So confusing but one thing leads to another and I'm worrying about life yet again. Help?

i had the same problem and the treatment is to focus in something like praying , reading and tell yourself every time you think about it "i'll not think about that ", that will be hard at the beginning and you must practice that 21 days continuously and you'll see the difference .

Enlightenment is not achieved but attained,it isn't found while on a walk but discovered during a journey. The mind is full of thought but the desire to clear the distraction from the goal of experiencing a higher place within oneself is in itself a thought. Take the thought of what is worry some about life and look at it as an ob<x>ject. It is what it is, nothing more or less. Set it to the side. Every thought is like that. It can be nothing more or less.

It does not happen over night. It takes practice , discipline and regularity. The monk at the meditation camp I attended several years ago told us participants , First thing you want to make sure is , you want to drive away the thought 'I want my mind to be clear of thoughts'. As long as that desire is in your mind , you can not make much progress. Once you accept all thoughts and observe them like a witness, they gradually disappear. For me it took more than 3 weeks to reach that point.

Imagine that your thoughts are on a cloud, passing through the sky in your head, observe them, watch the clouds pass out of sight.<br />

Keep practising, don't be discouraged it takes time to master a clear head.<br />

May Love and Light show you the way.

I don't meditate on nothingness. It doesn't work.<br />
<br />
Instead I focus on one thought, and take it where it leads me. Instead of branching out when it suggests something interesting, I shift my full focus to that thing. Ride it until it breaks like a stallion.<br />
<br />
From there I can guide my train of thought.
