My teacher told me not to rush back to practicing, but the longer I am away from it, the more I feel reluctance to begin again, even though there is suffering. I am hoping my reading will help spur me on, but I feel the need for more motivation. Thank you for the suggestions so far.

I found myself having resistance to sitting and when I discussed this with my teacher, she suggested I take a break to assess what meditation brings to my life and to see what works for me. She said it was normal to need to take a break and not to feel guilty about doing so.
It's been almost two months (I still do a weekly Green Tara meditation), and I am still having trouble determining how to reinvigorate my practice. I have been reading Buddhist-related books as well, but not the intensive, complex ones I had been struggling with, so I am not totally divorced from practicing and study. I am a Vajrayana practitioner.
Any suggestions on how to reinvigorate my practice are greatly appreciated. I would like to get going again soon.
