A New Experience

Student, 18 years

The second year of the course of meditation seemed to be different than the first year from the beginning. In my first year of the course, I tried to focus on meditating but I just could not keep my mind on it fully. I feel like I have matured over time during the first year of the course as well. I could sense my improvement during the classes when I would fall into meditating rather than keeping my eyes open or sleeping. I felt like I was just giving up or giving into failure so I would just stop trying. I felt like giving up was not an option and I kept trying. My first year I felt like I was dealing with a lot more stress but I did not know how to handle it and I did not know how to fully focus.

In my second year of the meditation course, I was fully into the meditation. I was actually ready by the first class and I could actually get into the different types of meditations. In the first year of the course, I could not feel anything in my mind but in the second year of the course I felt everything in my mind rushing. It was a new experience.
