The mind’s true liberation comes from understanding. Meditation can help you achieve this understanding. Meditation helps you control life instead of life controlling you. It is what calms the disturbances that crop up during everyday life. It doesn’t have to be complicated, in fact the simpler the better. All the trappings of formal meditation are just that, trappings. The only important thing is that you can calm the mind. No official poses, methods, or education are required. Just go with it, whatever works for you. I used to think you had to do it this way or that to do it ‘right’. The only ‘right’ is the way that helps you achieve tranquility.
