What is ONE Tip To Start Meditation?

ONE THING:

Notice the voice that is constantly talking in your head. Usually in negative form, or criticizing others.

voicesDo you hear it? Can you notice it?

If you CAN that is GREAT…

If the voice tells you something like:

“This is not right, this answer is stupid and you should not be reading this..”

You are in luck, because:

THAT IS THE VOICE!

You found it!
