And there it is a gain, that feeling like something is happening that is somehow just outside my field of vision, just outside of me perception. That little nagging feeling that there is something here that I should notice, give my attention to, but it refuses to come into focus. I might notice a little something in my jaw, a little feeling of tightness, my tell-tale sign that there is something afoot, but what is it.
The short Answer? Because I don't have the time not to.......
I know, it seems crazy, how can I devote time to something like meditation when my life is already crazy busy? I do not have the time to do the things that are already on my plate, and you are telling me to add one more? Where will I possibly find the time to do this? That is just crazy talk. This is just a small sampling of the voices in my head on a regular basis when I first started to meditate. I wanted to sleep just a little longer, lay in bed just a moment more, and honestly, many times the bed won. Yet, at this point in my life, I cannot imagine not meditating at least once a day, and many days I find time to meditate more often.
It is not uncommon for people to learn behaviours during their childhood that do not serve them well as they get older.
