My guess is that meditation guru's and masters do not have young children.
I've been doing some personal development reading and several authors talk about the benefits of doing early morning meditations.
I am naturally a morning person, so waking up at 5 am isn't a problem for me. However, my toddler also wakes up at 5 am.
This past week, I decided to do a 10 minute guided meditation when I woke up. 2 minutes into my meditation, my toddler came to sit on my lap. I ignored her and continued to meditate. She did not like that and got up and tried to climb on my back for a piggy back ride. I still did not react so she got off. She then went to the radio and turned it up FULL VOLUME. This of course did interrupt my meditation as I could no longer hear it.
I turned off the radio and went back to my meditation. My daughter left the room and I thought that I could finish the last couple minutes in peace. No, that was not the case. My daughter decided to climb upstairs to her sleeping brother's room and knock on the door until he woke up.
Just as my 10 minute meditation finished, my son was crying, having just been woken up from his sleep and my toddler was running around and laughing.
