Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

I've done Zen Buddhist and walking meditation. Most often I do centering prayer (Christian contemplation). Like you, Emily, I can notice myself becoming impatient and my mind racing when I don't do it as often, although I am generally a calm person. I don't like being around people who talk all the time or who are always distracted. I'm an introvert, who has to recharge by spending time alone after being with people. I'm always searching for quiet spaces. I'm happiest when I get beyond my ego, beyond my thoughts, to a place of pure experience. This doesn't happen all the time, but when it does it's very rewarding.

As you've said, I seem to be quite similar to you. My two best friends are very talkative, sometimes noisy people (although very nice), and after spending time with them I seek a quite place where I just read or sometimes just rest my mind. It sounds a bit exaggerated but I've found meditation very useful in this circumstance. That's why I get frustrated when I can't do it, because I know it would do me good, and I'd feel much better afterwards.

I find walking meditation to be quite an ''easy'' one to do, and one I do often as I'm going about my daily stuff. Walking between classes, to and from school, etc. I just watch my steps and focus all my attention on them.

I'm glad you've tried it and you're benefiting from it apple01
