Why can’t I meditate??

Someone told me he could not meditate. He said that he never got into that ‘meditative state’ after one year practice. My advice is, forget about you are trying to meditate! Remember the reason to meditate is because you want to have some quiet moment for yourself. Try to focus on your breath, relax and enjoy the moment. It’s fine if other thoughts come along. Even very experienced meditators will have the same issue. The only different is that they will bring back their focus on the their breath and they don’t force themselves to meditate. Just live in the moment.
