The effects of meditation on the mind

My goodness. This is very lofty:

Profound meditation in solitude and silence frequently exalts the mind above its natural tone, fires the imagination, produces the most refined and sublime conceptions. The soul then tastes the purest and most refined delight, and almost loses the idea of existence in the intellectual pleasure it receives. The mind on every motion darts through space into eternity; and raised, in its free enjoyment of its powers by its own enthusiasm, strengthens itself in the habitude of contemplating the noblest subjects, and of adopting the most heroic pursuits.

-- Johann Georg Ritter von Zimmermann

As far as I'm concerned, just exalting "the mind above its natural tone" is enough!!
