The Right Attitude for Meditation

     "Meditation is acknowledging and observing whatever happens - whether pleasant or unpleasant - in a relaxed way."
     This is great in theory, but serious practice when your health is a question mark (and it actually always is).

     "Meditating is watching and waiting patiently with awareness and understanding. Meditation is NOT trying to experience something you have read or heard about."
     Mercifully, when life gets seriously challenging, stuff you've read or heard about fly out the window, so in a way, it's easier to learn from what's in front of your face.
