As I look at myself today, I see a man with different priorities than I had as a young parent. The things that I once thought mattered, no longer matter to me, as my materialistic desires seem to have faded away... except that I want the best, state-of-the-art golf clubs. My priorities have changed significantly.
When we meditate, we try to connect to that inner peace and serenity that transcends thought. For me, it's a type of stillness that feels like I am completely connected to timelessness, and that there is no beginning or end, it just "is." But why does that feeling have to be so temporary or elusive?
