Before I started meditating many years ago, I thought meditation was something mysterious, esoteric. Then when I started, I loved it was just as easy as following your breathing. Or as complex.

It got easier with practice. I found, and still find, meditation to be one of the all around best things to do for me, my body, my health, my mind, and it's free .
