Meditation is returning home
During silent meditation we see all that we are attached to in the world. All worldly attachments just show up without effort. Just sit in Silence and notice everything that comes to mind ... then let it go.
Meditation is the practice of letting go of the world. Then we come to see things as they really are.
Jesus said, "Whoever has come to know the world has discovered a carcass, and whoever has discovered a carcass, of that person the world is not worthy." Gospel of Thomas
