Today, I have a bold and brave pronouncement to make.
Here it is….
Are you ready?
This is it.
You can’t be bad at meditating
You can’t. No one can.
You can be bad at dancing (and ain’t that the truth).
You can be bad at chess.
You can be so bad at swimming that you regularly have to be rescued but….
You can’t be bad at meditation.
Meditation is the most personal thing there is and is as individual and unique as every person on the planet.
Maybe you don’t believe me? Let me explain.
Over the last 12 months we’ve answered hundreds of questions from our subscribers and just people who were wandering by our site.
We have answered questions from people who have always wanted to meditate and people who have never wanted to until their spouse/mother/daughter gave them a subscription to our site.
Over and over, I hear people tell me they can’t meditate.
Here are the most common reasons they give. They are amazingly universal.
1. “My mind won’t be quiet. The longer I meditate, the more thoughts jump around and jangle me.”
I have asked many of our experts the answer to this question and their answer is always something like: “welcome to being a human being. “ (Although they nearly always say it in a kind, loving voice.)
I don’t think there is a person alive who hasn’t wrestled with this one. (It is possible that the Dalai Lama and/or Bob Dylan are exceptions but having spoken to neither of them I am just theorising.)
