Meditation for Thursday November 23, 2023

Sometimes it’s good for us to appraise the effects of meditation on our life.

This does not mean making a judgment about the so-called quality of our meditation practice, that’s a useless pastime that can only bring heartache.

But we can ask our selves the question….has meditation made a difference to my life?

How has my commitment to meditation changed me?

Has it changed me? Am I different?

Has my life become calmer, more peaceful?

Do I think I might be a little wiser, not so shackled to attachment and more in control of my life?

Do I understand that any experience that I might have during meditation is transitory and that the ultimate fruit of my meditation is how it affects my life.

These are questions worth asking.
