”One of the myths of meditation is that people think that something special or transcendent is supposed to happen and that’s usually the No. 1 reason why people stop meditating because they’re waiting for something to happen in that 5-10-15-20-30 minutes and the reality is that the magnificence of meditation, that your benefits of meditation happen when you’re not meditating, in the other 23 hours of your day.
So if you wanna ask yourself ”Is my meditation working?”
– Have you forgiven more people?
– Are you loving yourself more unconditionally?
– Are you looking towards limitless beliefs as opposed to limiting beliefs?
– Are you apologizing?
– Are you living your life with compassion?
Those are the signs that your mediation is working.
Meditation is a practice for real life.
And if you wanna see if you’re meditating right? If you show up that’s right. There’s only one bad meditation the one that you don’t show up for. Every other meditation is good. We’re always doing it right as long as we show up.
And think about it: if you can’t be with you for 30 minutes a day who else you think would want that?”
