I have been meditating on and off for twenty four years. Observing or counting breaths has always been my preferred method. This year I have not been able to meditate at all, lots of opportunity but it just does not happen.
I recently spent two weeks at a beautiful place with a meditation room and it was a complete waste of time. I tried switching to the metta bhavana method without luck. My usual methods seem to act as a powerful stimulant and I experience 'monkey mind' like never before. Even my body gets fidgety and that is new for me.
Life is pretty good at the moment, no special stress or anxiety so I am at a complete loss. Any advice anybody?
