In Buddhist meditation, what do you find is the harderst thing for you?

  1. My back starts to hurt. On the plus side, I see a hole in the spotty stuff on the back of my eyelids and if I don’t think directly about it I go into this place where thought and time don’t exist.

  2. “All of mankind’s problem stem from their inability to sit in an empty room for any length of time”-Ghandi (I think)
    ^^That is so hard to do, but I have done it for 3 hours on end. Don’t give up!

  3. The lotus position. I normally settle for second best and just sit half lotus or cross-legged with pillows under my legs. As for the actual meditating, I find that the first 5 minutes are the hardest. The mind settles down on its own after awhile, but for the first five minutes or so it’s everywhere.

  4. Sitting still and relaxing into it. Once I’m there, I’m fine, but getting there is difficult. I found a Hatha yoga book that has an asana series that really seemed to help with that because it sets my body and mind up for the meditation, but on days when I’m not feeling the meditation-love, it’s really hard to sit still.
