What is meditation?

“Meditation is falling in tune with nature, with Existence. This is your natural state, your true state of bliss. This is connecting with the Ultimate Consciousness. Meditation is just being blissful in the moment. When you are at complete peace in the present moment, you are already in a state of meditation.” If I had to put down the answer in one line, I would say, anything that raises your consciousness is meditation. It can be even a simple breathing technique. It can be a simple repetition of a word, or it can be just simply sitting! In the Zen tradition, just sitting is meditation. You may think this is the easiest but in fact, it is the most difficult meditation. Anything can become meditation, if it raises your consciousness.
