Meditation is Hard

Okay, I am not going to lie to you. Meditating every day is hard. 

 Those who say it is easy I think are probably lying. Maybe not, but I can’t help but wonder. 

Even Zen teacher Dogen said, “Even teachers of old who had great capacity said that practice is difficult” (Moon In a Dewdrop).

It is not that it is difficult to sit for 25 minutes. It's difficult to face the inner world. It's not entertaining. It’s not fun. 

Why do I do it then? Because mindfulness is the most valuable skill for living a happy and peaceful life.
