There’s so much spooky new agey stuff that comes along with sitting to meditate. I figured, maybe I can comment on the rare occurrence that you may feel a little too in tune with your practice. I’m really here to denounce the idea of overemphasizing that surrounds meditation life after death. The most obvious thing is surely a barrier to you moving forward with your own practice.
But wait there’s more.
It’s not just the spooky or the esoteric that get this type of treatment when we begin talking about meditation. Joining a community or not, and finding the perfect fit. I strongly believe that in starting off, you should highly consider giving your practice a go solo. I know it is a little confusing and awkward at times, but understanding meditation starts with practicing meditation (speaking of which I haven’t sat today, what a hypocrite!). The most difficult thing in meditation is consistency. Yes your thoughts are going to wander, yes you are going to be a little uncomfortable this can help with that, but don’t you forget to sit daily. I promise it all falls into place as you relax into a practice. For me it all clicked randomly after about 35 (who’s counting) days doing it. I’ve learned that consistency is the secret ingredient in most instances. Please use liberally.
