Day #45: Meditation at its source

Meditation beautifully introduced. It really is simple at its essence. Being - we breath in, and breath out. But, we make it hard by adding layers of expectation. We expect meditation will 'make' us feel better. We expect we will just 'remember' to do it in our busy lives and 'magically' commit the effort to practising everyday for extended periods of time. Layer upon layer of expectation we add until it all feels too hard, and we feel shit for not doing it. A great antidote for this cycle, as it turns out, is to meditate... I see you vicious cycle - and I raise you one mindful breath! #(En)Lighten Up!
