If the only time, the only way that we could meditate was when it was perfectly quiet and our body was perfectly comfortable to begin with, we would rarely manage to meditate. And what use would it be to us anyway?
So do what you can. Choose a conducive environment and adopt a conducive posture.
But then accept what you are unable to change or alter, and transform any challenges into something that actually supports you as you train your mind to be at peace with what is.
