When someone begins to work-out and lift weights, do they see immediate results? No, it can take months of hard work before they do.
When someone begins to diet in hopes of losing weight, do they see immediate results? No, again it can take months of eating properly before they
Meditation is a life long practice, calm down, do not compare your own progress to others progress. Take it day by day, some days you may not feel
like doing it, do it anyways and do not expect any results or you will become frustrated and give up, just observe and contemplate your own progress.
The best part about meditation is it is much easier and less demanding than lifting weights or going on a diet, things that millions of people force
themselves to do in order to stay healthy, even though it is not always pleasant to do, meditation takes far less effort.
It is not a race that you can win, or a magical solution that you must immediately learn about in order to fix your problems. Just take it day by day.
ps. Many people who strive to experience the 'amazing' things other people 'say' they have experienced, do so out of ego and end up 'burning
out' on meditation very quickly, then they say "well it used to work but now it doesn't, wtf?!". It is because they have forced themselves down
the wrong path trying to compete with others 'experiences', instead of just observing and contemplating on their own. Day by day.
