“I’d said I’d check in with you in a couple of weeks, and I think it’s been 3 or so now… Anyway, things are going well with the mediation. I’ve not missed a day yet and look forward to them every day, particularly the afternoon one. I still do struggle a bit with the mantra getting tied to my heartbeat or breath and those sorts of things, and then allow that to bother me, but the good thing is I know I’m doing it and I know that it’ll sort itself out if I just let it. I still feel like I’m getting “better at it” and like I’ve got a bit of a way to go before I really get it, although it may be that that never happens, I don’t know. Either way, I enjoy it and feel I get a lot out of it. In terms of how it’s affected me away from the meditation itself, I feel more clear-minded and feel like I can access clear-mindedness when I need to if that makes sense.
I’m waffling a bit, so I’ll just say thanks again for the course. I got (and continue to get) a lot out of it.”
