How it works

I often remind students that experiencing the benefits of meditation works by the saturation method. We do not suddenly learn a principle and then consistently apply it. Applying the principle takes practice and being reminded of that principle over and over. Here's something that speaks to this reality:

There are very few human beings who receive the truth, complete and staggering, by instant illumination. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.

- Anaïs Nin
