Example text

All you have to do is sit down for a bit and enjoy your meditation. That sounds better, right? That’s the beauty of having a consistent environment for your meditation practice. As Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche has said, “The environment is a support or a deterrent for whatever we want to do. ”1 If you want to establish a meditation practice at home, one of the most important things you can do is create a supportive environment for yourself. Take a moment today to look at your home. ” Are there clothes strewn about, piles of dishes in the sink, and knickknacks everywhere?

Sometimes you might sit down to meditate and ten minutes will feel like forever. You will worry that your timer is broken and glance at your clock and see it’s only been three minutes and you will want to leap off the meditation seat. Don’t do that. Sit for those ten minutes. ” Don’t do that either. When you start to go down that road of adjusting the amount of time you’re meditating while in the act of meditation (a) you’re using your meditation as a source of distracting yourself from your meditation and (b) you’re starting to judge your meditation practice.

Just like when you make a new friend, you start to appreciate their peculiarities. In this way, meditation is essentially a process of becoming friends with yourself. A senior teacher in the Shambhala tradition, Pema Chödrön, has said, “In practicing meditation, we’re not trying to live up to some kind of ideal—quite the opposite. ”2 Your mind may sometimes be chaotic; it may sometimes be peaceful. In either case, if you can investigate it through simply being present then you are becoming more thoroughly who you are.
