You’re in control.

You choose when to meditate. You choose the meditations that you practice. You can choose how long to meditate for. You can choose to drop your practice temporarily, or permanently, at any point.

Meditation is not a goal-oriented, willpower-based activity.

We are gently becoming familiar with our minds. We are not imposing, or attempting to impose, control of our minds.

Some people need to meditate on a regular schedule but most people meditate when it works for them. To give you an example, I made the greatest progress in my meditation practice when I was meditating once or twice a fortnight.
