The ultimate reason we meditate is to integrate our consciousness and see the whole.
Through meditation, we see the whole when we are centered in our minds. We can never see it if we’re stuck in some attachment.
What obstacles stand in the way of our integrating our consciousness?
Judgmental attitudes. Where did those judgmental attitudes begin? They begin in the ego. That’s why many thoughts and different forms of victim consciousness arise during meditation, with mental distractions never ceasing.
Meditation is cleaning a mirror that reflects heaven, earth, and ourselves. When that mirror is clean, we can see with eyes that are not eyes and hear with ears that are not ears.
Once those true eyes and ears open, we will be able to see everything as one because real truth is one.
