I came to realize during a particurarly 'good' session that the rating system is a manifestation of the exact mentality my meditation has taught me to reject. It's not about whether each session is 'good' or 'bad' and how much in which direction. And in any case, the system is extremely unreliable. Often I'll be reflecting upon my sessions and realize that one which was exruciatingly slow and seemingly unhelpful was actually a great and meaningful sitting. So in light of this, I no longer rate my sessions. The system interprets this as a zero, but it doesn't matter. It's about me, not some lines on the graph.
