According to the report, a common challenge that people face when they try meditation for the first time is that they are unable to clear their mind and remove all thoughts. However, this is a false problem as meditation is not aimed at removing all thoughts from the mind. Instead, meditation aims to enable people to observe their thoughts, even focus on them, without responding to them emotionally.

Another challenge refers to the failure to find a comfortable position when trying meditation. In order to deal with this issue, advises to keep in mind that many beginners are facing the same issue. Also, it is important for beginners to experiment and find the right and comfortable position for themselves.

Finally, many beginners seem to be unable to fight being sleepy. For this issue, the report recommends trying to change the time of the day when they usually practice meditation or changing the position. A posture that is as upright as possible can improve alertness and the overall mediation practice.

According to, “Meditation sounds simple and easy to follow. But it still takes practice to master it. The key here is to have self-compassion. Being too hard on yourself if you fail to do it right the first time around can only lead to frustration and eventually giving up on the practice. Give yourself a break and don’t expect perfection without giving it the proper time. You’ll get there, eventually. All you need is a little bit of time.”

Jun 19, 2019

PALU, Indonesia — The flags hanging outside Anwar Ragaua's house have drawn warnings from police, but the wiry 50-year-old vows he's not taking them down. After all, the police weren't there to help when he was the sole fisherman in his village to survive the tsunami that inundated the Indonesian city of Palu at dusk on Sept. 28. Nor was the government. Nor were the aid organizations that swept into the stricken region in remote central Sulawesi. Instead, the first people to offer him hope — and a new boat — were deployed by a hardline Islamic group notorious for...

China issues travel alerts, slams US 'interference'

Jun 19, 2019

BEIJING — China issued a pair of travel warnings for the U.S. on Tuesday and slammed what it called "interference" in its internal affairs. Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang accused the U.S. of acting in bad faith in trade negotiations and said any attempts to interfere or undermine China's stability would be "doomed to fail." The volleys of criticism between the two largest economies leave them further than ever from resolving their standoff over U.S. complaints that Beijing resorts to unfair trade practices and unscrupulous methods to obtain advanced technologies. The Chinese comments followed a statement from the U.S. Trade...

Challenge to Indonesia vote makes big claims, weak on proof

Jun 19, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — The court challenge to Indonesia's presidential election from the losing candidate claims that the police, intelligence agency and other state institutions were biased in favor of the incumbent, but its evidence for "massive" fraud is mainly printouts of news articles.

Seven people died in what police say was orchestrated rioting in the capital last week after official election results confirmed President Joko Widodo had won a second term with 55.5% of the vote. Subianto's legal challenge...
