Meditation course introduction

Here's the introduction to a meditation course I found. It sums up what we're about:
More and more people are adding some kind of meditation to their daily routine, either as an effective antidote to stress or as a simple method of relaxation. Meditation enables you to create new attitudes and responses to life, giving you a clear spiritual understanding of yourself. Meditation is the process of re-discovering, enjoying and using the positive qualities already latent within you. Like any skill, meditation requires practice to achieve positive and satisfying results. By doing a little every day, it soon becomes a natural and easy habit.
This week in the ongoing classes we talked about the obstacles to meditation or to applying the meditative principles to life's challenges. One of those obstacles is forgetfulness. I find that reading statements like the one above helps me to remember why I meditate and helps keep me mindful. Regularly availing ourselves of reminders is all to the good.
