Coming to Sukasana or an easy seated position for meditation can be anything but. As I sit on my mat at the top of the practice space it is the time when I see the most fidgeting and tension in the faces of those in front of me. So much effort. Too much effort.
The next you come to sit, do nothing. Yes get yourself comfortable with props if you need them but beyond that give in to the discomfort. Relinquish control of your racing brain. Let it run. Sit with your achy shoulders and your tight low back. Let go of the goal of quieting the mind and just focus on being in the moment. There is no such thing as being good at meditation. Simple sit and notice. Relax. This approach transforms the act of being still from something uncomfortable and unattainable into something easy and effective. What happens in the mind, happens in the body. The sense of ease will radiate outwards. Commit to the practice of sitting for a few minutes every day and beyond that do nothing.
