Wish I Had Started Meditating When Much Younger
Meditation might have made me a calmer person, even back then, say, as a teenager: so many impulses could have been curbed, fewer mistakes made, more "looking before leaping" perhaps; but then, I do like the life I have now, most of it anyway; and I got here, most of the way, without meditation. Maybe I would have taken the same path, but experienced it more during the journey.
Does that make sense?...
I think if I'd been meditating from a younger age I would be smarter now, because I would have experienced life more fully, more thoroughly; and as they say, "experience is the best teacher."
