So, the thing is...I'm really terrible at meditating.
REALLY terrible. I actually wrote about how terrible I am at meditation back in 2007, and nothing much has changed.
Only, I have this very strong sense that I'm SUPPOSED to be meditating--that's its a key part of achieving the kind of inner calm I want. That's it's vital if I'm ever to achieve this different way of being that I'm looking for.
So, starting today, the first day of school in my neck of the woods, I'm committing to 30 days of daily attempts at meditation. Even if it's only five minutes, I am going to sit and clear my mind and just see what happens.
If you'd like to join me, I'd love the company! I have a new Facebook Page for the 30 Day Meditation Challenge, or we can just hang out here in the comments. Today, I'm going to stay after yoga and meditate with my instructor who knows a LOT more than I do about this meditation business. I'll let you know how it goes!
