Instead, they think they are the endless stream of thoughts that propel them into various activities, based on fears and desires. Meditation provides the path to inner knowledge. This is the insight that comes from going deep within.
We can watch our thoughts cavorting around in their frenzy until they die down and we find that place of peace. From this vantage point, many insights arise about the nature of Life itself, Cosmic Consciousness, and creativity. It is a spaciousness into which the Divine Intelligence of the Universe can enter.
If we are constantly on the go, rushing around being late, out of breath, in a frenzy, worried, fretting—there’s no space for this Intelligence to enter. This is why meditation, however it is done, whether mindful walking, dancing, mountain climbing, or sitting quietly is extremely insightful.
