We can all find time to meditate. Still, we might not be willing to find time for activities that:

  • We don’t particularly enjoy
  • Make us feel bored or restless

Sitting still in a lotus position may be one such activity. If you don’t like it, this is understandable.

Forcing yourself to do something you don’t enjoy or might not be ready for can be a form of (subtle) aggression. In other words, we’re ready when we’re ready.

Therefore, it’s OK if sitting still is not OK for you (at least for now). However, be careful:

There’s a fine line between not showing up to sit still to go beyond your mind and not being ready.

Fortunately, to be in a meditative state, there are numerous alternative ways to meditate.
