Why is meditation so difficult? We live in a society of instant cures. We want the discomfort to go away, quickly! What meditation points us to, is that rather than running away from what’s discomforting, there an alternative choice that is available at our disposal, when it comes to dealing with what’s unpleasant. And what is it? It is, feeling right at home with what is unpleasant!! Sounds crazy? You’re not alone. One has to take time to really get what meditation really means.
