Very useful Q&A session about meditation with an advanced level meditator, who used to be a Buddhist monk…
“Find a group to sit with. I can’t stress that enough. You’ll be liberated because there will be a set schedule, a consistent routine, a quiet place to meditate, and they will help support you in your practice.
Once you start doing that, the more you sit, the easier it will be to remain mindful.
One thing you can try is while you’re doing anything keep your mind focused on your breath at the hara (the center of breath). Keep your mind open and allow the sights and sounds to come to you. Keeping your mind on the hara while doing this will cause open awareness. This is a great way to flex the muscle of mindfulness.”
