Ahhh… meditation. Who doesn’t absolutely love to let it all go and sprawl out in perfect calm and liberating tranquility? People don’t smoke weed, take Xanax or go on paradise vacations for nothing.
It can be surprisingly difficult for us humans to meditate. We’re busy with lots and lots of things. We might not even know why we’re doing half the things we’re doing. What exactly is the point? And what’s the rush?
Most of us are living in a sort of hypothetical reality in our minds. We think about life, talk about life, think about the past, dream about the future, make plans, learn the seven habits of successful people, and work really hard to do what everyone else is doing…. Meanwhile life is the thing happening while we’re busy thinking about it and talking about it. It’s actually possible to miss the whole thing.
