Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It's like the ultimate rest. It's better than the best sleep you've ever had. It's a quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life fresh.
Man's real life is happy, chiefly because he is ever expecting that it soon will be so.
Edgar Allan Poe

Feisal Abdul Rauf
