  2. Hi Normalyn! A very warm welcome to 'The Secret Writer' blog and thank-you for joining as a follower of this site :-) I would agree with you that meditation is not easy. I used to think quite wrongly that it was just another 'buzz' money making topic, until I decided to give it a try just to see for myself, what it was actually all about. I think the secret is regular practice no matter what frame of mind you may be in at the time, but if you can master it over time, it actually can work! I am now sold on the benefits of meditation but as I have already said, it does take commitment and regular practice which is hard to find time for in this very busy world that we now live in!
