In a moment, sit somewhere comfortably and close your eyes. Try and sit like this for a few minutes. Congratulations, you have just meditated. Meditation has been practiced in religious and nonreligious ways for thousands of years. You don’t have to be a dedicated student of meditation to enjoy some of its benefits. People tend to find they feel better and can think more clearly as result of having these little moments of quiet.
If we spent half an hour every day in silent immobility, I am convinced we should conduct all our affairs far more sanely than we do at present.
