What about when you can’t meditate?
So I really believe that the reason I am the one of the most qualified person in the world to be in charge of this site is because I may be one of the worst people in the world at meditating.
I’ve heard it described as lots of things. Monkey mind, Crazy head syndrome (okay I made that one up!), catastrophizing.
Definition: Describes a mind that jumps from thought to thought like a monkey jumps from tree to tree. The monkey mind is not content with exisiting in the present moment, but rather engages in the thoughts that pass through.
Anyway you cut it, when you are ruled by your mind which is out of control, all cannot be well.
So you’d think, wouldn’t you that someone who was creating a website with meditations would be excellent at meditation. Wrong
I sat down this morning, in desperate need of calmness and got nothing but jitters and jumps from my mind. In the end I
put on I cd that I had received as part of a wonderful mindfulness course by Alison Keane. Cheating? Maybe but man it felt better.
