Meditation or discovering how to remove your attention


Meditation, whether it be done sitting with your eyes closed or not,
occurs when you discover how to remove your attention from anything in particular
and allow it to float freely in consciousness.

When meditation occurs
it is like realizing that you can fly.
You live your whole life anchored to a narrow range of thoughts, feelings and sensations,
and suddenly you find yourself floating in midair.
Nothing is more exhilarating or mind altering than the freedom you find in true meditation.

Deep meditation allows us to let go of who we habitually think we are
so that we are free to become more than that.

That is why I see it as an essential part of the transformative process.
