Meditation is an act of consciousness. Meditation is a state of consciousness. Meditation is a type of perception.
Meditation is not a technique, it is not “spacing out” or daydreaming, it is not a way to avoid problems or avoid life. Meditation is not about having some type of sensational ecstasy with physical sensations.
Instead, real meditation is a form of perception in which the consciousness is awake, free of conditioning, utterly liberated, simple, happy, perceiving. Meditation is a conscious perception.
