There are many paths to the Meditative experience. The frustration many feel with meditation is a desire to walk before you crawl, in a sense. People will say “I just can’t quiet my mind!” At first , like going to the gym , or running, you need to build your attention. Meditations at first are about building the muscle of attention, That means , of course you will be distracted! It isn’t the presence of distraction that is the problem. Learning to navigate distraction and build the skill of bringing yourself back to the activity is what you are doing especially at first.
