Brain scientists are only scratching the surface when it comes to how meditation affects the brain. I’ve been a meditator for a few years now and I will say that when you develop a constant practice, you’ll see benefits almost immediately. 10 minutes a day for a month is all you need to start connecting the dots.
Before my current mental health issues I could sit from 30-45 minutes. During this time of my life, everything was so clear and concise. Literally nothing bothered me. Instead of fighting the waves that came towards me, I embraced them and rode them as if I was a California surfer.
What I want you to understand is that life is going to throw everything including the kitchen sink at you. What you must do is learn how to live with it. Learn how to dodge those objects and smile as they leave. I know this isn’t one of my better posts, but considering my current state of mind, it’s not half bad. Take care of yourself and others. Metta.
