In the past, I have not enjoyed meditation. I’ve always found it exhausting and boring. Recently, however, something changed in me to cause me to actually enjoy meditating. I don’t know exactly what happened; maybe it’s because I learned a technique that worked better for me.
My technique is this: I focus on the “inner energy” of my body, as Eckhart Tolle says to do. Then I repeat a positive mantra that I truly believe. As someone who has struggled with negative thinking patterns for a long time, I believe that this act is rewiring my brain to be more positive. In any case, as I meditate I feel calmer and happier by far, and I truly look forward to doing it whenever possible.
