The stress and anxiety we feel comes from the fear that we aren’t good enough. As humans, our basic nature is goodness, but unfortunately we often fail to see it within us. Meditation is an effective way to recognize and trust our basic goodness. Start by sitting down and dropping your awareness into your body. Proceed to notice your breath, as though you have never felt breathing before. Bring this beginner’s mind to your heart and all the sensations you feel.
