Meditation is a safe, secure way for you to explore both the inner workings of your own mind and the out manifestations of transcendental reality. Along the way you will meet your own personality and make friends with all its facets-god, bad or otherwise.
You will also touch the larger nature of the Universe in ways that are profoundly comforting and healing. You will develop patience with yourself and others. Finally, you will gain insights from your contemplative experience that cannot be obtained any other way.
The process of meditation as discussed in this book is about focusing attention, not thoughts. In some systems, It is not even about focusing attention, but about relaxing the mind and body instead. Because there are many ways to meditate and many potential goals for meditation, there is no one definition that suits all the possibilities.
