Meditation

From reading "Moon in a Dewdrop: Writings of Zen Master Dogen", I liked this passage about meditation. Bear in mind that "objects" are thoughts, or what comes up in meditation or life.
"Long ago monk asked an old master, "When hundreds, thousands, or myriads of objects come all at once, what should be done?"
The master replied, Don't try to control them."
What he means is that in whatever way objects come, do not try to change them. Whatever comes is the buddha-dharma, not objects at all.... Even if you try to control what comes, it cannot be controlled."
