    Is meditating compatible with Christianity? I wanna do it, but I'm scared.

      @1234567 Meditation is observation of things as they are. You don't need to be scared. Meditation is compatible with truth.

      Meditation is completely compatible with Christianity! Many Christian saints, such as St. Ignatius of Loyola and St. Francis de Sales, used meditation to deepen their relationship with God. Meditation involves simply observing your experiences moment by moment. It doesn't require you to adopt any sort of specific beliefs :)

    Welp, my practice seems to have fallen off a cliff. I haven't gone to my meditation teacher in months, in large part because I've been sick and don't want to spread my illness. Hopefully I'll get back into it once my life settles down a bit.

    Gotta figure out how to quit wanting to fall asleep when I try. How did I used to do this?

    One minute at a time. A friend sent me a piece of music to which I think I can repeatedly listen without impatience.

    I downloaded two apps on my phone to help with this goal: 'Calm', and 'Headspace'. I've begun the week-long '7 Days of Calm' programme, and listened to one of the sleep stories last night when I went to bed. I haven't tried Headspace yet, but I'm really happy with and enjoying Calm so far. Some of the options are locked as they are pay-only, but there seems to be enough to do independently, or through introductory programmes. I like the various independent-meditation options, as well as the option to use the guided sessions that focus on different areas - stress, health, sleep, etc.

    I just finished a nice session of yoga, reading from the Majjhima Nikaya, sitting meditation, and walking meditation. Judging from the state of my mind, there is much left to be done.
