      "text": "When you practice meditation, one of the things that can be powerful to explore is the difference between being aware of what's occurring and our relationship to what's occurring.  When you meditate and notice that they're two different parts of the experience of tinnitus meditation, you can start to explore where the stress or suffering is. Maybe you've noticed that the more resistance, or aversion, there is to the sound, the more unpleasant or stressful it becomes. Even labeling the sound as 'noise' might lend itself to aversion. Part of meditation practice with tinnitus, or other things you're struggling with, is to befriend and welcome the complete experience. It might feel like this, ‘Right now there is tinnitus — this is how it is right now.’"
