Connie asked Deepak Chopra:

How can someone begin to make meditation a daily practice? What advice do you have for someone just beginning to mediate and struggling with it?

Deepak Chopra 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.
Love,
Deepak
