You’re Not Alone

When I took my yoga teacher training on of the comments the Swamiji made stuck with me: We’re lucky to have an eighth of a second with no thoughts. An eighth of a second! Celebrate the times when you are able to observe your thoughts from a distance, when you’re able to control your thoughts. Trying to have a long period of times with no thoughts in the mind doesn’t mean that you have failed at relaxation or meditation; it simply means you’re human! The more you practice the better you get. Here are a few posts that might help you in your quest to meditate:
