I have found that simple instruction can many times be the most difficult to follow simply because people do not always have the amount of control they assume they have over their minds. Work on strengthening your concentration by being able to enter samadhi at will. This will help you to keep the mind focused on a single object for observation (and later for insight practice). Once you are able to recognize your ability to access samadhi at will, that is when your practice should take off to the stratosphere! Assuming, of course, your successful ability to practice insight meditation.
when you say that one needs to learn to enter samadhi at will to which samadhi do you refer to?
