In the past, I’ve done it purely for secular reasons–to help from feeling overwhelmed, to ease some physical pain, or just to feel a little more peace. But, lately, I’ve been thinking that that might be my problem. What if I used meditation as a companion to my other spiritual practices?
Another potential problem could be that I’ve always tried to do it on my own. I’ve listened to a couple podcasts, read a couple books (literally, 2). But, nothing really spoke to me.
