Mindful : December 2017
BE CURIOUS ABOUT YOUR PAIN The more you meditate— the more time you spend just being with yourself without a big project or focus—the more aware you become of what lies beneath the surface of your busy mind. You may star t to notice fear, anxiety, or other emotions bubbling up more—and your vantage point allows you to peer into them with interest: What are these all about? SEEK THE HELP OF TEACHERS AND GUIDES As meditation becomes a deeper part of your life, it can help to find someone, or per- haps several people, who are experienced in this practice. Meditation is intimate. It’s not about an idealized, abstract experience. Talking things over with an experienced guide can help you loosen the stuck places. APPRECIATE RESILIENCE You’re going to fall off that slackline many times and end up with some scrapes and bruises. But the beauty of meditation is that no matter how many times you get distracted or lost—even if you stop doing it altogether—you can always just come back. “Challenges are an opportunity to deepen meditation practice. Instead of panicking, we can understand the wisdom of not personalizing everything and look at the larger human picture. Instead of having a why me attitude, we can say, Well, why not me?” SEBENE SELASSIE December 2017 mindful 49
