31. Why Is Meditation So Hard?

How do I empty my mind? That's a common question, and misconception about meditation. Meditation actually causes you to get into your head. It doesn't make you clear your mind, it makes you stop and think. It makes you think about you and your life, the impact you have on the world, and the impact the world has on you.
