If We Don't Have Time to Meditate Then We Need to Meditate

Whenever we want to adopt a new healthy habit like incorporating a meditation practice into our daily life—usually the first thing that creeps up is resistance.

Resistance comes in many forms. The most common one is “I don’t have time to meditate.” This statement alone is an insidious tactic that we use on ourselves to create self-sabotage and keep us from obtaining inner peace and tranquillity.

It is resistance towards change and permanent transformation. 

We all have the same twenty-four hours in our day. How we use that is up to us. We all place priority on what we think is most important. If it’s important enough we will create time for it.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda says “If you have time for meditation, meditate for 21 minutes. If you don’t have time for meditation then meditate for 42 minutes.”

Isn’t it time we re-evalutate our sense of time?
