Zen teacher Norman Fischer proposes a two-week trial run to get your meditation practice started and looks at some of the obstacles that may come up.
"In short, if you want to meditate there is virtually no excuse not to. But human confusion is very clever, so it is still possible to talk yourself out of it. If so, be my guest. Sometimes that’s the way to finally begin serious meditation practice: by not doing it for ten or twenty years, until finally there is no choice."
