Anyone who has tried to meditate knows that, for a beginner, it isn’t easy. We may question our progress and feel confused as we come face to face with our restless mind. Many of us may even begin to question whether we’re doing it properly.
Meditation is a process of lightening up, of trusting the basic goodness of what we have and who we are, and of realizing that any wisdom that exists, exists in what we already have. We can lead our life so as to become more awake to who we are and what we’re doing rather than trying to improve or change or get rid of who we are or what we’re doing. The key is to wake up, to become more alert, more inquisitive and curious about ourselves.
