Chogyam Trungpa writes in Mindfulness in Action: Making Friends with Yourself through Meditation and Everyday Awareness,

Meditation allows us to step out of fundamental self-deception. This approach is not cutting off the thought process altogether, but is loosening it up. Thoughts become transparent and loose, so they can pass through or float around more easily. Thoughts are often very heavy and sticky, and they hang around, demanding that we pay attention to them. But with this approach, the thought process becomes relaxed and fluid, fundamentally transparent. In this way, we learn to relate to our thought process, rather than trying to attain a state without thoughts altogether.
