The Secret of meditation…is steadfastness: For the more you meditate, the more you will want to meditate, but the less you meditate, the less will you find meditation attractive. Never quit. Do less meditation for now, but remain regular. If you have already quit, begin again today.
Do not expect any specific inner flower (experience) in Meditation. Expectations are bound to disappoint. Instead meditate in the spirit of karma yoga, without desiring any specific result: “Whatever comes of itself, let it come.” Even if nothing comes, this is no problem. Meditation invariably brings good things, which are outside our conscious awareness. So just happily accept whatever comes.
The purpose of affirmations is to send positive thoughts into the subconscious mind, changing its automatic habit patterns. The best times to affirm such thoughts are when the subconscious mind is open and receptive. In deep meditation affirmations can be most effective of all.
