On Meditation

"The practice of meditation takes us on a fabulous journey into the gap between our thoughts, where all the advantages of a peaceful, stress-free, healthier, fatigue-free life are available, but are simply side benefits.

The paramount reason for doing this soul-nourishing meditation practice is to get in the gap between our thoughts and make conscious contact with the
creative energy of life itself." ~ Dr Wayne Dyer

This is a terrific way to language it. Our minds can get so incredibly busy, so full, that they create an entire world of sensation and cause/effect. Get quiet enough, still enough, and the cracks in the world's mask become large enough to see. Peel the ego back sufficiently, and we become small enough to slip through those cracks, and join with the primal forces within. And THAT is an experience beyond language...or limitation.

Thanks for the timing of that particular subject. The last couple days I've begun experimenting with trying meditation (which I virtually never do normally) before my work shifts as an antidote for extreme stress. Your comments are encouraging; I hope the long-term effects of meditation will be rewarding too.
