      As more new meditators join
      and post questions, a review
      and encouragement to pursue
      meditation is offered over
      morning coffee:

      On a practical level meditation
      has several "layers". It is a
      relaxation technique, a method
      of learning to consciously "push"
      a relaxation button and handle
      everyday stress better.

      It is valuable as part of a strategy
      to achieve life/career goals. A
      quiet calm and confidence begins
      to settle in as meditation becomes
      a daily practice. An inner state of
      quiet calm and confidence is
      "felt" by others at home, work
      and at play. This inner calm is
      accompanied by more patience
      and a more tolerant view of others -
      allowing that people are simply
      where they are in their journey
      of life. As a result...

      Careers shift to a higher gear,
      relationship move to a new plateau,
      meditators easily quit smoking,
      achieve their ideal weight and can
      even play better golf. (A noticable
      physical grace accompanies the
      inner calm and grace).

      In business, meditators are
      more clear in their communication.
      (The quieted inner chatter allows
      the mind the process data and
      sensory input more easily and
      with greater clarity and trust in
      personal judgement.)

      This can improve efficiency and
      develop cooperate relationships
      between management and staff,
      between departments, and between
      co-workers. improve customer service,
      company "spirit" and team work.

      At a deeper level, the inner calm
      and growing confidence in "self"
      that meditation brings, has been
      known to resolve and dissolve
      personal issues, such as guilt
      despair, fear and doubt, anger
      and jealousy, and...
      meditators find themselves
      engaged in much more positive
      self-talk in the course of
      their everyday internal chatter.

      For those who are seeking to
      find some root "model" for
      expressing their spirituality;
      their interest in, longing for,
      and search for "God", it is a
      journey along the mystic path.
      This "path" is found at the
      core of virtually all traditions
      and religions...and it exists
      apart from any theism...as
      a language of the heart.

      Meditation is the cream
      in the coffee of life.

          Great. There's more:

          A renewed awe for
          the beauty of life, a
          childlike gratitude
          for everything from
          a sunrise to a soft
          pillow, the sudden and
          startling awareness
          that someone you've
          known for some time
          is stunningly beautiful -
          physically and as a
          person, and that
          everyone and everything
          is beautiful...in their/its own
          way, less concern with
          the outcome of events
          and more joy in the
          journey - the process,
          the displacement of
          the god of what-will-
          other-people-think
          with quiet self assurance
          and comfort in being...

          All this childlike joy,
          with the mature appreciation
          of a a calm and confident adult.
