What would you do if your Nihilistic SO came to you wanting to learn more about your beliefs? Normally, someone might take their SO to church, or Mass, or maybe out into the woods. Not for me and him. No, I had him sit comfortably and close his eyes while I spoke softly and tried to lead him through meditation.
Anyone else see a problem here?
I do. I can't teach. I can show someone how to do something, but that is it.
I believe meditation is the bridge to all knowledge of the universe. That is all. It is the portal to enlightenment and peace. Others believe differently. I begin my meditation by simply closing my eyes and breathing regularly. Sometimes I count backwards from ten, sometiems I picture a candle...
My questio is, should I attempt to teach him my way of meditation or encourage him to learn by himself, as I did? I'm terrible at telling people what to do or how to do it, especially someone I care about. Any ideas?
