Meditation: Expanding our Capacity to Appreciate

Beside Restful Waters, a column by Greg Hermann

Elephant Love

Today (January 26, 2015), I am experiencing a bit of a revelation (I think). I am new to the practice of meditation (practicing about a year). As a good student, I have read several books, listened to meditation instruction from our library of CDs, and established a fairly good routine to practice the meditation process. The readings speak of attaining a state of “bliss.” They also relate the stories of adepts who have spent many years, or their entire lives practicing to attain this state of “bliss.”
