How’s it going?
What’s going on?
Have your expectations surfaced?
It’s easy to start to expect things of our mediation. We want to be more relaxed, to float along through life, we want to do it “properly”, we want to feel connected, moved and more spiritual, or whatever it is you hope for.
Let go and keep meditating.
I say this because I have done all these things; do all these things and whilst there are many benefits from meditation expecting them sets us up for disappointment.
We begin to judge, criticise and to measure, and when it fails to live up to our desires we quit. “ It wasn’t working anyway,” we say.
Let go and notice. Notice that you feel that way, observe yourself.
More Monday meditation next week, and in the meantime;
Is anything different? Has anything changed?
