Keeping This Up

As I write this right now, I feel incredibly thankful to God(s). Although I am under the weather at present with some kind of mild virus or other, I still feel so much more emotionally uplifted than before. I guess it really is all in the breath as the Art of Living teaches us.

There is a small part of me, though, that is afraid this might not last - I know as far as emotional satisfaction and stability it really is all in the mind. And as for training the mind, that is where the Sudarshan Kriya that I learned from the Art of Living comes in. The point I'm getting at, though, is how to maintain a discipline where I keep doing it.

I know meditation is an art that one has to want to do; I found it to be literally impossible to force oneself to meditate. So how do I keep that want going? I try to keep doing it regularly, but I admit some days it just seems more trouble than it's worth. My mind knows it's important, but yet it just doesn't want to cooperate on certain days.

Maybe one reason for this is that I get bored easily. Perhaps I need to change and vary it some days, but how? I still want to do it right, so how do I keep things interesting while still honoring the traditions I follow?

If the audience has any advice, please share it. :)
