Dr. Manganiello explains meditation’s real purpose. Like the word stress, the word meditation has been used so much, by so many, that its meaning has been lost. Meditation is more than mindfulness. The real purpose of mediation is to experience our mind’s natural condition, in the timeless awareness that is NOW. Most of us are seduced into, and distracted by waking dreams, created by our thinking, conceptual mind. Our lives have become removed from the health, sanity and wisdom inherent in our mind’s true nature.
