The Purpose of Meditation is...

The goal of meditation

is NOT to prevent us

from feeling certain emotions

for that would be

the metaphysical equivalent

of a lobotomy.

NO, the purpose of meditation

is to make us more mindful

of what we feel

so that what we feel

does not sneak up on us

and make us act the fool.

And then to help us

harness the energy

of what we feel

to fuel: our love,

and compassion,

and the wisdom of letting go

that we might become

the healthy, well-adjusted adults

we have always longed to be.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

The production of these webinars, and videos, and livestreams,

and podcasts, and blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
