Why is it so hard to meditate?

By Michal Spiegelman

Last week in my Monthly Meditation Class in Atlanta I asked the people who attended what they hoped to get from the class. All of them said that they would like to learn how to establish a regular meditation practice, having tried so many times before. Today, I would like to explore why it’s so hard. On Thursday, I will share the 2 most successful ways to start.

So why is it so hard?

1. We are not used to sitting still ? being ?on the move? so much, there is a physical challenge for our body to sit still. We might feel pain in our legs, back or knees.

2. We are not used to seeing how busy the mind is ? when we sit and watch our mind, we realize how busy it actually is. Our mind makes its mental ?To-Do? lists and thoughts arise one after another. That’s our mind?s agenda. It may seem like our mind becomes busier when we meditate, but it’s like that all the time ? we just don’t realize it.

3. We can’t find the time ? our world sends us messages of DOING more and more. We become busier every day and we can’t seem to make it a priority and find the time to meditate.

4. We tend to avoid feelings and thoughts ? Naturally, thoughts and feelings pop up when we meditate. We try to avoid those if they make us uncomfortable. The goal of meditation is not to stop thoughts from happening. I hinted at this above and I will explore this in more depth in my next article.

Is it hard for YOU to meditate? Would like to hear your thoughts.
