Meditation can be extremely fascinating when you first start doing it.
However, like with anything new, its novelty can wear off.
We become lazy. We get busy. We have other things to do, which are 'more' important.
I've persevered with meditation. It's been difficult. But I'm glad I did. By doing so, I'm slowly beginning to see results:
1. I don't get freaked out about situations like I used to.
2. I've learnt to control my brain, so that I stop getting carried away with negative thoughts. I just ignore them, and they pass away. By doing this, I'm living much more in the present moment, which is a much more fun place to be.
3. I'm experiencing life more fully, by not allowing the past or the future to govern how I'm feeling.
4. I'm doing tasks and activities, without getting too concerned about outcomes. If it works out, then great. If it doesn't, then that's ok too.
I recommend it. You will see results.
