Hello, my name is Michael Zamot and I'm from Costa Rica. We don't have any Theravada community nor temple here, just a few guys who meet over the internet.
I'm starting again with Buddhism and I want to understand better Theravada tradition (still undecided).
I'm not very good meditating, I tried with a cushion without luck and with a self-made meditation bench which almost work for my posture. Now the problem is my mind, I get bored too soon or I just feel relaxed, but what else should I expect, what should happen? I do some kind of meditation when I practice Tang Soo Do, trying to focus on my movement in the forms.
Also, I want to know which other practices may I do, because, apart from the difficulties, I don't always meditate, I tried as much two times per week. So I want to do something else too, because meditating is not enough.
Thanks so much!
