About "meditation"

Buddhist meditation can be compared to a “laboratory situation” in which our mind learns to be aware of itself. Like a visitor at the zoo, we learn to watch thrilling phenomena that show up in our mind without actually judging them. The goal of meditating is being able to continue to maintain such awareness in our everyday life, so someday we are the first to laugh at ourselves in case of strange, slant or baffled behavior. As a result of persistent, regular mediation, we increasingly manage to avoid personal dramas and learn to enjoy the comedy of life. Over time, we achieve serenity, develop a good sense of humor and maintain relaxed and caring relationships with other human beings.
