I just started Jon-Kabat-Zinn's book Wherever You Go There You Are (subtitled "Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life"). I'm only through the introduction but I have to share this bit with you:
"You certainly have to be ready for meditation. You have to come to it at the right time in your life, at a point where are you ready to listen carefully to your own voice, to your own heart, to your own breathing--to just be present for them and with them, without having to go anywhere or make anything better or different. This is hard work."
When I got to the part about having to come to meditation at the right time in your life, I thought, "Hey! That's me!" So I already feel a connection to this book. I hope it'll be as eye-opening and helpful to me as I think it will. I'll let you know.
