Free Meditation Tips
1. Be Kind
If there is one thing I learned and one thing that I did not always do at the beginning that was to be kind.
To tell you to hold your meditation practice with kindness is the greatest gift I can offer you. So many of us pick up meditation in the same way we pick up lots of things in life - with harshness and impatience.
So be kind when you meditate...
When you get distracted during meditation, come back to your meditation object with kindness and love.
Please don't give yourself a hard time.
I will share a little story about the meditation teacher Ajahn Chah. His followers noticed one day that he was always quite tough on his Thai monks but never rebuked or said any harsh words to his Western monks.
They asked Ajahn Chah why this was so...
And his reply? The Thai monks need my encouragement and this sometimes means some harsh words. But with the Western monks, he said, they already give themselves a hard time enough without me giving them a hard time too!
For Ajahn Chah saw that Westerners as a whole really give themselves a hard time. And I imagine you could be a little kinder too!
2. Be Patient
This is also very important in meditation: patience. Meditation is just a way of being, of practicing. We sit, we meditate and we are patient with whatever comes up.
That means that when you have a great meditation, let go, be patient, don't hold onto it.
And when you have a bad meditation, the same, let it go, don't hold on. Let go of it and don't give up. Be patient.
