I am a type of person, who can’t sit patiently for a single moment. I need to always keep moving and live an active lifestyle. As an artist I spend more time with myself than with others. I needed some extra energy to have a spirited social life. So adding life to life was my first goal. I did that by practicing yoga and meditation and it was an absolutely delightful and life changing experience.
I remember when I just started learning the art of meditation. I was so hard on myself! But I was told on authority that every meditation technique works when you enter it from a happy place.
What happens when you any random friend, family member or even a stranger whether like to meditate?
Most of the time the answer would be no! It’s either that they find it boring or that at times they find their minds wandering or focusing somewhere else. They figure that it’s hard to meditate or find it difficult to visualize their happy place. When their mind is overflown with too many thoughts, they tend to fidget and cannot sit still for the meditation. Their thoughts are carrying fear and anxious feelings at all times and struggle to have a peace of mind. They feel that they have so many other important things to focus on that they cannot spare 15 to 20 minutes to meditate.
