I’m currently reading “The War of Art”, which is about the challenges of overcoming one’s internal challenges i.e. Resistance. 

This was the paragraph that caught my eye, as something completely representative of most people’s attitude towards meditation: 

Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it’s the easiest to rationalise. We don’t tell ourselves “I’m never going to write my symphony”. Instead we say “I’m going to write my symphony; I’m just going to start tomorrow.”

Substitute “write” for meditate!  

Rule of thumb: the more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.
