Mind or consciousness, is always relating to ‘me’—to a subjective point of view.
When we are meditating consciously, we feel that the instruction is coming to ‘me’ because ‘I’ am the meditator, or that ‘I’ the subject am within the meditation.
We have difficulty accepting the fact that the way to meditate is simply to ‘let go’ of all preconceptions and expectations and to ‘just be’.
Once we can do this, we will realize that meditation is simply living in the present and not being concerned with past memories or future expectations.
But we also need to be careful not to grasp at the present; we need to let go of any position, even the present position.
