What Is Meditation?

Meditation is the dissolution of thoughts in pure consciousness, knowing without thinking…Voltaire


One goal of meditation is to just become aware of what’s going on without creating thoughts about what’s going on. This practice becomes easier as we just sit and be, regularly. It’s also achievable when we’re amidst nature and just taking in the beauty that surrounds us.


As we reduce the creation of thoughts that describe what’s going on, we begin to experience an ineffable peace. This peace is deeply satisfying and connects us to the ‘pure consciousness’ that undergirds the entire universe!

Daily Affirmation: Today I AM simply observing without creating thoughts!
