When you first start meditating, it will feel weird. Yes. Your mind will tell you it's a waste of time. Why sit there and think about nothing? You will get annoyed. May I say, stick with it anyhow. It gets better.
It is exquisite to reserve a place exclusively for peace, and peace has a flavor that intensifies when concentrated. However, it's not necessary to depend on that space to meditate: You can take your practice wherever you go once it is established.
When I sit down to meditate a crazy cacophony of ideas vie for attention, each one more urgent than the last. These ideas are like demons that need to be released into the air or they will undermine my ability to function.
Some people think that their thoughts and feelings are the result of something outside of them. They blame others or a situation for "making them" feel a certain way, as if the thought came from outside and got in their head. We know this isn't true.
Meditation is complete indulgence in the experience of the present moment. We often think of indulgent behavior as being morally wrong, which it can be when it comes at the expense of a deeper connectedness.
When we increase real, pure love, we increase self worth, balance, power, and truth inside the self. When I am in that state, a natural sense of worth and authenticity returns and a deep memory that "I am love" and "I am free" emerges.
When we meditate we aim to reduce the impact of "waste thoughts," allowing real genuine thinking to take over our mind. Negative and waste thoughts weaken our inner state of being, and positive and necessary enhance the soul's original inner power.
