Why don't I meditate more often when I have the chance and I know it is good for me? This is a question I have as an experienced meditator. For people who have not meditated but perhaps are interested, but have yet to get to a class to try it out, there is a similar question, perhaps along the lines of: I know I am interested but why haven't I gone along to a class?
Part of the reason may well be the same for both questions: you may be suffering from some spiritual inertia- this is basically where your life force energy is a bit bunged up which literally makes it difficult to move and difficult to access some energy levels, resulting in inertia. For me it appears when I recognise that I will probably feel better if I meditate but I choose to watch something rubbish on TV instead, or do some unimportant (compared to feeling more myself) task which leads to the 2nd point .....
It is easy to judge the space we are in and think that we should be somewhere else- a kind of spiritual guilt - so if you consider coming to meditation class, you might think you are not good enough and can't come because you have not been meditating enough or are not good enough in some way. This is not true!
The answer is to just come along and dive in. It sometimes takes a while to clear out the energetic 'gunk' we inevitably accumulate as sensitive beings but as you do more meditation the beneficial effects build up. Come and give it a try, the more people who come to a class, the more powerful the effects are for everyone.
Finally a video link to a Headspace cartoon about meditation which I like and that you may enjoy. I hope it works, but let me know if it doesn't
The next session of weekly classes in Chi Gung (Qi Gong) and/or Meditation starts on June 11th.
