Are you expecting mind-blowing things from your meditation practice and it’s not delivering?
I wrote this article for Elephant Journal about a few tips I wish I’d known sooner when I started meditating. This is one that I believe is really important, something I read in a book by davidji, Secrets of Meditation:

In fact, those “special” experiences can be kind of distracting. He talks about how this can get us so caught up in evaluating our experience that we actually move away from stillness and back to thinking!
So what is the point of our meditation sessions then?
