I always thought I am bad at meditating. Can't sit still and just turn my thoughts off for even 5 minutes.
Then I realized it's not only me; even the most spiritual people -most likely - thought same at some point of their lives, because we are all humans with a brain.
And I discovered that most of us already meditate - we just do it accidentally. Daydreaming, staring out a car window, the moments before we fall asleep... these moments where the mind wander are in fact meditation. We just need to create more opportunities to enter into this creative state.
So, next time you are sitting in a car, resist the urge to check your phone: just stare out the window. Cooking, cleaning or if you were like my husband prefers vacuuming.. these are very effective accidental meditation.
Whether it is Brahman for Hindus, HaShem for Jews, Allah for Muslims, God for Christians, or any other name you give Him, listen to your heart and say His Name.
