Eknath Easwaran's Commentary
Meditation enables us to understand the teachings of the scriptures and apply them in our daily life. It is meditation that reveals the inner Self dwelling in all things.
But the practice of meditation is like a long journey: some days we make wonderful progress, and others we seem barely able to go one step. Like a veteran traveler who knows the road, when we gain a little experience of the benefits, we’ll look forward to our meditation period. We’ll sit down for meditation with eagerness and enthusiasm each day.
