“… meditation is in reality intensely practical. One of it’s first fruits is emotional balance.” – 12&12, p.101-102
Being a bit high strung, Type A personality and self-diagnosed with ADHD, sitting still and meditating has always been a challenge for me. But the fact that it’s been difficult for me only means that more opportunities for abundance and happiness lie in my ability to successfully develop this habit. And the promise of becoming more emotionally balanced is certainly worth the effort.
