The Object



The object of meditation should not be to gain something, but to lose. We need to let go of things. We need to relinquish thoughts of accomplishment. Meditation is not a board game with tokens. It cannot be measured with a yardstick to see how far we have come. Sitting with the idea of gaining enlightenment is the wrong approach. It is far better to lose ourselves.
