"To understand the currents of a river, one who wishes to know the truth must enter the water."
—Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj
Reading and talking about meditation can be very helpful and inspiring. But the only way to get the benefits of it is to do it. Every one of us, including me, has to make the conscious decision--has to muster the courage--to sit down and turn inward every time we intend to meditate. Each time renews our commitment to ourselves and our freedom. And it doesn't take that long before we start to see the results.
