From cyberspace, Uttar Pradesh in India. "It is very difficult, finding a proper time for meditation. Living with my family, interruptions keep coming up all of the time. What can I do about that?"

Your problem is not unique. But, you do find time for eating. Your family understands that and they don't interrupt you while you are eating. Your personal time of meditation is extremely important. Choose your time for meditation and explain to every member of the family what you are doing. Encourage them to join you. Then sit up straight, close your eyes and perform your meditation. Don't get distracted.

You can do it. I know you can.

Be free from the past; abide in the present; detach yourself from the future; and live in the eternal now. Evil has no source, unless the source of evil's seeming be ignorance itself.
