I should meditate for several hours each day.
1. Is it true? It feels true.
2. Can I absolutely know it is true? No.
3. What happens when I believe the thought? Constricted, pressure, some panic, distracted/dispersed mind, resistance. I try to follow the belief, which brings up resistance.
4. What/who am I without the thought? Clear. Would allow the inner/spontaneous motivation to come up and guide me.
5a. I should not meditate for several hours each day. (Yes, what is right now is how it should be).
5b. They should meditate for several hours a day. (Yes, others do it – fulfill that function and role, which makes me free to choose).
