Dear Connie,
If you are struggling with meditation, then my advice to you would be to let go of all your expectations of what you think meditation should be. Your ideals of it being something that gives you instant peace and happiness can make you feel frustrated and lead you to think you are doing something wrong if you don't feel those things in your meditation. Understand that when you are doing meditation correctly, you are in the hands of your highest intelligence and guidance and everything that happens leads you to greater healing and self-awareness. And that is really what meditation is for.

“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.”
Deepak Chopra

“According to Vedanta, there are only two symptoms of enlightenment, just two indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher consciousness. The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things don't bother you anymore. You become light-hearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities. And this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. (quoted by Carol Lynn Pearson in Consider the Butterfly)”
Deepak Chopra, Synchrodestiny: Harnessing the Infinite Power of Coincidence to Create Miracles

“Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.”
Deepak Chopra
