Lama Jigme Gyatso
Forging the Habit of Meditation
It is not meditation’s technique that is the most difficult to master, nor is it the posture, or even the motivation. No, the greatest challenge to a new contemplative is merely the task of forging a new habit.
Most adults brush their teeth upon rising every morning and prior to retiring each night. What drives us to do this? Is it a fierce desire for perfect chompers, or a dread of cavities, root canals, and procedures? Or is it merely a habit, cultivated since childhood, that serves us well?
As new meditators our first goal must not be one of technique but of habit. Show up and sit for only five minuets every twelve hours. Do this every day for a month: the habit is forged and you’re one step closer to meditating like a Jedi.
