What is Meditation?

Meditation is all about transforming the mind. We direct the mind toward virtuous states of mind and practice them. This is how we change our mind. By practicing a specific pattern, such as loving kindness, our mind becomes habituated. Then it is easier to express loving kindness in daily life – even under challenging circumstances. At the same time, we are denying attention and life energy to unhappy states of mind, such as worry or anger, so that it naturally dissolves from disuse.
