Do not meditate with a goal

Do not meditate with a goal

Meditation is a practice of being present. It is the opposite of thinking. Time stops. 

The notion of a goal, trying to accomplish something within meditation, invokes thought and can result in feelings of judgment. Meditation does not reduce pain or suffering. But, in the context of meditation, one embraces suffering in a way that allows it to pass thru you; just as you observe thoughts, allowing them to float in and out of consciousness without responding to them.

Yet meditation need not be entirely passive. Feelings of love, patience and gratefulness interact with the energies of the universe, exerting a subtle and divine influence on the shared existence of all humankind.
