Why Meditate?

Meditation has become a trendy practice. Why?

And is it really meditation?

If you've tried meditation, you probably wanted some measure of calm.

If you have been meditating a long while, you now realize that calm is only part of it.

Why? Because meditation is really about seeing clearly.

About seeing things as they are. Awareness.

And to hold it all, we practice calm abiding without judgment.

This is what meditation is. Sitting with what is. With kind attunement.

The practice invites a steadiness into our lives.
