Another way of looking at meditation

This is actually a very intriguing image:

We are sick with fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas. Meditation is therefore the art of suspending verbal and symbolic thinking for a time, somewhat as a courteous audience will stop talking when a concert is about to begin.

-- Alan Watts

Let's make a commitment to behave like a courteous audience with our own minds!
