It is also necessary for us to be realistic about our approach in meditation. There are no quick results. We need to have a realistic approach where we allow ourselves time for transformation to take place; we need to be patient with our practice. There will be no results merely with a few attempts as it is not that easy to overcome a distracted mind.
Results won’t occur within a few days or few weeks or even few months, but if we engage in the meditation practice year after year, then we will begin to notice that some transformation definitely takes place. A steady transformation over a long period of time is sustainable and stable.
