I wrote about my fist foray into meditation a few weeks ago. You can find that article here: (What Happened When I Started Meditating) It’s been over a month now and I’ve had a extremely cool and interesting journey with it. Some of the results of meditation were what I thought they would be, but then other things started happening that I never imagined. After so short a time learning to meditate I’ve discovered so much about myself in completely surprising ways.

The point is that I never knew how to find it before. Suddenly I have the tools to seek it out and pull it down inside of me. If I wasn’t addicted to meditation before, I certainly am now!
2.) Work Atmosphere: I’ve talked about my business partner several times. He’s… hard to always be around. His biggest flaw is really that he’s oblivious to the people around him. For the last few months I’ve been frustrated and resentful towards him. You know that feeling of frustration that burns right in the lower part of your chest? Yeah, that feeling. It built and built until I couldn’t find calm if my life depended on it! Insert the beginning part of my meditation journey. Continue reading
