Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve been grappling with what seemed an intractable problem. Part of the difficultly around ‘fixing’ or ‘solving’ it was due to my inability to recognise and accept the current situation. The other part of it was I was being very self-critical over not being able to ‘deal with it’. After all, in my line of work it should be a piece of cake, right? No, wrong.
If you are new to meditation, you might want to set some time aside to put solid foundations under your practice. As you progress, that structure you have carefully put into place supports you and provides stability as your practice grows.
If you are very lucky, life has been kind to you. If you’re like the rest of us, it has given you a good kicking more times than you care to mention.
