Lately, while meditating, I feel as if I am stuck as far as progress goes. I’ve heard it said that sometimes it’s better to just sit without the striving. That is hard advice for me to follow since much of my life off the cushion is so goal-oriented, always eager to be doing the next activity. I bring that baggage with me when sitting and oftentimes will cut my session short due to restlessness.
Just be. Simple, yes. Easy, not so much.
