Everyone’s asked if I’ve tried yoga or done any meditation apps to relax- and up until last evening, my answer was no.
My daughter had put an app on my iPhone, and since my son couldn’t sleep, I decided to give it a “go.”
Within the first 30 seconds, the man’s voice got on my nerves- but it was more what he was saying- re: his reputation.
App man: I began meditating 6 years ago in Istanbul. I spent 6 months in silent meditation for 14-16 hours a day and what I realized is, that everyone has fleeting thoughts- and that’s normal. To think one could meditate for more than a minute without another memory or thought popping into your head, is unrealistic. …….
In any event, I deleted the App because I spent the next 20 minutes wondering what his problem was to go into some meditation isolation to not speak, concerned, agitated, fraught with questions, and annoyed. …. Freak.
