Meditation Myth #1

Myth #1: Meditation is difficult.

MeditationWeb_a47f1f24-7c79-439b-8577-c2f6b1743ed8Truth: This myth is rooted in the image of meditation as an esoteric practice reserved only for saints, holy men, and spiritual adepts.

In reality, when you receive instruction from an experienced, knowledgeable teacher, meditation is easy and fun to learn. (I’d note that a teacher is great but not totally necessary – with today’s guided recordings online, apps, etc., it can be done at home, alone…)

The techniques can be as simple as focusing on the breath or silently repeating a mantra. One reason why meditation may seem difficult is that we try too hard to concentrate, we’re overly attached to results, or we’re not sure we are doing it right.
