Meditation helps us live the "width" of our life by enabling us to experience equanimity, compassion, lovingkindness and joy. Meditation gives us insight, awareness and clarity. Through meditation we develop observer consciousness which is essential for doing effective inner work. Be deeply grateful for your meditative practice because the benefits are truly incalculable.
I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.

The "width" of life
As humans, we have the capacity to reflect on our experience. But we can choose not to do it. Sadly, many do choose not to look within or to explore inner reality.
