Most Helpful Guy
I've been meditating since I was a kid. I've also read many books on the subject, most of which are full of dogmatic crap. I have one clear favorite it's called "Teach Yourself to Meditate" by Eric Harrison. "Mindfulness in Plain English" by Bhante G. and "The Relaxation Response" by Herbert Benson are also good. It is a skill, like anything, and it will require practice.
I hope this helps.
