There's nothing in it that regular readers will not have encountered before but it's an encouraging read and I really like the way it starts:
Why meditate? On one level, meditation is a tool. It can help combat stress, fosters physical health, helps with chronic pain, can make you sleep better, feel happier, be more peaceful, as well as be present. But on a deeper level, meditation is a doorway into the unknown. It can help us get a sense of the mystery of who we are.Sadly, some people really don't want to know who they are. I think that's tragic. The beauty of meditation is that, in addition to giving us self-knowledge, it also gives us the tools not to be overwhelmed by that awareness.
