    Well, it's not denial of unpleasant experiences. It's more the idea that "ranking" emotions from good to bad is unhelpful because it leads us to favor certain emotions over others. That is, it causes us to avoid anything that might create sadness or anger or frustration. In reality, pain is often a really strong indication if what's important to us, so to call such emotions negative or bad when they can be arguably more instructive than happiness doesn't really play out so well.

    Again it's not denial. It's viewing them in a manner that allows openness to experiencing them regardless of what pain they might carry with them.

    I can appreciate your belief in this philosophy but I've seen other similar advocates that espouse it in action and it doesn't appear to hold up under pressure. Maybe it works for you.

    That's fine, though I'd never rely on any individual or individuals' anecdote. Even just analyzing this statement in a Western and logical way shows it's pretty rational. There's lots of science behind it, too, per Relational Frame Theory.

    I got to my fourth day of meditation today and it was actually pretty difficult to not go ahead and just pass it up.

    Today was the first day, well first day out of four, where I went to look at my computer before going over to meditate. I was kind of bent on not doing it for a couple minutes. But, I did anyways. I was more anxious and it was more difficult to keep focused on my breath. Halfway through, I was able to find what everyone else calls a center and focus on that. But it was still difficult to keep my mind from wandering.

    I think it's most difficult because I already got what I wanted out of meditation. I got a sense of balance and presence, and now that I have it, I don't feel like there's a point in continuing to do it again until I become overwhelmed with something. I'm going to set a goal to do this for two weeks straight and that's it. To think I'm going to do this for the rest of my life is just setting myself up for failure.

    Two weeks. I'll see how I feel after then.

    It's pretty amazing. I learnt to relax by myself, to focus.. and saw many benefits spread out from it (social, etc.). You can learn online (hackself.org) or in person (tm.org). Just be consistent.
