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.”

Protests squeezing Hong Kong economy, tourism, leader says

Oct 15, 2019

HONG KONG — Hong Kong's economy is languishing after months of increasingly violent protests, the city's embattled leader Carrie Lam said Tuesday. Lam, addressing reporters after a long weekend of more turmoil, said tourism arrivals were down by half and that hotels and retailers were suffering. Hong Kong's third quarter economic data will definitely be "very bad", said Lam, the semi-autonomous territory's Beijing-backed chief executive said. Lam said she did not have the data with her. But empty streets and tourist attractions are evidence of the fallout from the protests that began in June over a now-shelved extradition bill that...

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Oct 15, 2019

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

China ban on some textbooks seen aimed at Uighur culture

Oct 15, 2019

BEIJING — For 15 years, Yalqun Rozi skillfully navigated state bureaucracies to publish textbooks that taught classic poems and folk tales to millions of his fellow minority Uighurs in China's far western region of Xinjiang. That all changed three years ago when the ruling Communist Party launched what it says is a campaign against ethnic separatism and religious extremism in Xinjiang. Suddenly even respected public figures like Rozi were being arrested, caught up in a crackdown that critics have said amounts to cultural genocide. An estimated 1 million Uighurs have since been detained in internment camps and prisons across the...
