If anyone told you that learning meditation is hard and you need to either have some special talents, or infinite patience to learn it, they've either tried to sell you something, or display their ego. There are many people with higher egos around and learning to avoid getting intimidated by them can be quite difficult at times.
Learning meditation can be interesting, rewarding, and it can become a life long passion, as it has become for me, if you choose it to be. It can be a fun activity, one that can be as much, or as little as you want it to be. You can make it a full part of your life, or simply a hobby or a past-time that allows you to relax, to reduce stress and to invite more good in your life.
