Why You Should Meditate – Pema Chodron

These words of wisdom are from Pema Chodron. She teaches you why you should meditate.

She tells us that we are not meditating to become good meditators. We are meditating to become more alive, more aware, more awake.

Daily practice is the key to establishing a good meditation practice. It can be as little as nine minutes a day. As you develop your practice, you can extend it to fifteen minutes, twenty minutes, a half an hour, or even one hour.

The Nine Minute Meditation course can help you develop the good habit of daily meditation.

A good time to meditate is in the morning when you wake up. Another good time to meditate is in the evening when before you go to bed. Any time you can find nine minutes when you will not be disturbed is a good time to meditate.

It is best to assume a comfortable position sitting up on a straight back chair or on the floor on a cushion or two. Your posture should be erect and your spine straight. While posture is important, it is much more important that you meditate every day.

When a student of mine asked how she could better her practice by learning to meditate every day, I essentially gave her the advice in this article. A few weeks later, she told me how beneficial my instructions were and that she was making great progress with her daily meditation practices.

We don’t sit in meditation to become good meditators. We sit in meditation so that we’ll become more awake in our lives.
