' The Real Spirit of Meditation '...

He will understand the real spirit of meditation when he
understands that he has to do nothing at all, just to sit still
physically, mentally, and emotionally.

For the moment he attempts to
do anything, he intrudes his ego.

By sitting inwardly and outwardly
still, he surrenders egoistic action and thereby implies that he is
willing to surrender his little self to his Overself.

He shows that he
is willing to step aside and let himself be worked upon, acted
through, and guided by a higher power.
