Which Kind of Meditation Should I Do?

Dear reader: If you wish you did more meditating than you do now, you might want to check out my book, Dailyness. Below is an excerpt.


If someone eats unhealthy food all day every day, and then switches to healthy salads, the types of salad won’t matter. Their health will improve.

After your meditation practice gets going, that’s when your real research begins, because your fascination will drive you, and from then on, the things you learn about the spiritual path will make sense. It’s the same with fishing or cooking or anything else that can only be learned by doing it.

Once you’re up and running, then you can patiently experiment, and pick and choose from different kinds. Or stick with what you started with. It just doesn’t matter.

What matters is that the “What kind should I do?” question doesn’t hold you back. That’s a ploy that our idleness uses when it goes to battle with our motivation. If you get bogged down at deciding how to start, and that keeps you from meditating at all, then the con worked, and idleness won.

What kind of meditation should you do? The kind where you stop whatever you’re doing and sit still.


Dailyness is available in print, ebook, and audiobook at all the usual places.
