A Good Meditation

DivinePrinceDivineLightUniversalA good meditation has little or nothing to do with ‘extra-sensory perceptions’ or escaping temporarily from suffering. A walk, a nap, a vacation, or a good science-fiction film can be more effective for such purposes.

If we rise from the seat or the cushion with more tolerance, more patience, more love, and more compassion, our meditation has been good. If we continue to harbor the same prejudices, the same irritability, and the same indifference toward the suffering of others, it does not matter how many divine lights we see or how many celestial sounds we hear, our meditation is a farce.
