This month, I set a goal for myself to meditate for 30 days. I have been doing some meditation at home with the help of a meditation CD I received as a gift last Christmas, as well as some meditations on YouTube.

But my mind is still a chaotic whirlwind.

I understand that meditation is a skill that, like any other, takes practice. It's hard practice, though. It doesn't involve reps or sets or hill repeats or balancing on one leg. It involves sitting in stillness and trying to quiet your mind. That's hard.

I don't know how to sit still. I don't know how to stop making plans and lists and goals. I don't know how to stop writing blog posts in my head.

I just walked in the woods for 5 months straight, for pete's sake, and my mind is still a chaotic whirlwind!

Sometimes it's good to have a little focused instruction.

So I signed up for a free 2 week program from Mr. Meditation himself, Deepak Chopra! The program, called Secrets of Meditation, is free and begins tomorrow, October 7.

If anyone is interested in this program, sign up here. We can become serene and centered together!

Or, at the very least, I can become okay with my mind being a chaotic whirlwind.

That sounds great! I do enjoy meditation, but can't really quiet the mind yet either. Breathing is really the closest I can come.

I'm trying to learn to meditate... no such luck yet. :(
