Why you can’t learn meditation?

If you are thinking as to why, despite making so much effort on meditation, you are not able to meditate, then read on because what you are going to read may be a revelation for you.

The single most important reason for our failure in meditation is our inability     to make it a part of our daily routine. It may sound too simplistic an answer but in reality it is an uncomfortable truth.

You need to work consistently to make meditation a daily habit. Doing meditation itself is not that difficult. The difficult thing is to doing it daily. In other words, it is related to your overall life style and how you change it.

I may sound a bit superficial but what I am saying has emanated from my  own personal experience. If you have not yet started doing meditation daily, I request you to give it a real genuine chance and  try to allocate at least 10 minutes of your daily routine for meditation. You will be surprised when you try it in real.

Allocating a short span of 10 minutes a day for meditation is something which a majority of people can not do.

As such Meditation is easy but only when you make up your mind and actually start doing it regularly. Being regular is tough and difficult, meditation is not.

    I have always been a great believer in meditation every day. I try to get an hour in before I eat in the morning, but it can be incredible difficult for many people.

    Many have busy lives, work, children, bills etc. I really think that it’s something which must be a life priority. For many people, the fact that they meditate on a daily basis, actually helps to make every day more structured and positive.

    The difficulty is the transition from not meditation to getting into daily meditation. Once you’re there it just all slips into life and becomes easier.

    I couldn’t agree more. I used to meditate sporadically and got very little benefit. In the 70’s I took TM after the Beatles made it popular. The Maharishi was adamant about meditating twice a day for twenty minutes. When I did that my life changed dramatically.

    However you meditate doing it daily is definitely the key.

    Thanks for you blog,

    Great point! Once you get into the habit, your day doesn’t feel right until you have spent that time in meditation.

    just like trainig a muscle the mind needs to be trained. practicing concentration. with practice just like anything else your mind will settle and you will acheive a calm clear mind. bringing your mind’s attention to the breath for 5 min or 50 is benificial

    Yes, a daily practice is a wonderful thing to do. It takes some discipline but if you just sit in your established meditation chair you have started. Sit erect but relaxed with the chest area open. Place your hands on your lap. Close your eyes and connect with your breath, noticing your inhales and exhales. Think of receiving on the inhale and giving out on the exhale… You can learn how to meditate and you will benefit in many ways.
