I am here to share my journey as best I can.
Why Mindful Agony? I was sitting down meditating this morning and I was reminded of how difficult it is to sit through discomfort and stay focused on the object of meditation. Not Agony in it’s literal sense… But, it is agonizing to not seek that comfort… a mental anguish that hightens the physical discomfort beyond its actual level.
And, when you think about it, that’s a really good analogue for a lot of life. Going through instead of around discomfort and pain is most often the path to a better outcome.
