i meditated for years. however, it's very hard for me to meditate, because my head would go on various commentary trips, for example, i would stand in hug-the-tree pose, deep breathing, then my head would start,
"i wonder if popcorn go good with this..hmmm"
"what if i put some butter on the popcorn. no no.. butter would be bad for cholesterol..."
"what if i dip popcorn in barbeque sauce like my son... strange little bugger.."
"you know what go really good with bbq sauce? chicken wings! ya, them nice deep fried wings.."
"need celery and carrot with dips to go with the wings. maybe some drinks too....."
"can't have drink with out something to watch...."
"maybe the expendables movies with all them old actors to make me feel young...."
"wonder if they are going to put steven seagal in the next one......"
