Why do we struggle to meditate regularly? Why does it feel like another “should”? Why is it that we can experience a sense of wonder immediately when we look at a sunset, but feel only restlessness and a sense of failure when we close our eyes to meditate? Why is it so often a dry and cognitive exercise in futility?
