Develop Your Meditation Posture

In order to relax during meditation it is important to sit comfortably. The traditional position from practicing meditation is the lotus posture ( sitting with both legs crossed, the tops of the feet resting on opposite thighs). Easier versions are half-lotus, (sitting, one foot resting on the opposite thigh) or sitting upright on the floor with legs crossed. If you feel any pain in your knees position a cushion beneath the pelvis.

Try to meditate regularly. Albeit the ideal time is in the morning, you can meditate anywhere and at any time. Think about being inspired by the clouds. A Zen master once said, "The sky does not impede the clouds in their flight." Meditate on this idea. Allow your thoughts, like clouds , to drift across the surface  of your mind without trying to push them away or hold on to them.
