One of my good friends has been recommending that I try meditation, and suggested that I read the book Mindfulness in Plain English. I started reading it today and its message strongly resonated with me.
Recent events have convinced me that there's a more open, honest and connected way to live the rest of my life. So I'm searching for ways to help myself down that path. Based on what I've read about meditation so far, it sounds like it could teach me a lot.
I'm going to finish reading the book and then start practicing the techniques it describes. The author explains that it takes discipline to reap the benefits of meditation. That's OK with me.
I'll blog about my experiences with meditation in case anyone else is interested.
