We meditate because this world of ours has not been able to fulfill us. There is too much anxiety, worry and frustration in our everyday lives. We are constantly at the mercy of negative forces that are all around us. They take the forms of jealousy, fear, worry anxiety and despair.
It is only through meditation that we can get lasting peace. If we meditate soulfully in the morning and receive peace for only one minute, that one minute of peace will permeate through our whole day. We need meditation because we want abiding peace, light and delight. If this is our aspiration, then meditation is the only way.
