As a person who simply lives life as it is, I never understood how meditation works. I have friends who meditate and always urge me to try it even if just for a few minutes. But I would never get it – how does one shut off one’s mind from any thought even for a few minutes? How is that possible? Sitting still and doing nothing feels more like the perfect setting for a thousand thoughts to come rushing to mind.
So I thought, I confirm cannot meditate ever…ever.
