The Scope of Meditation
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“What is the ultimate scope of Meditation?”
“It’s important to realize that Meditation is a means to an end, not the end itself.
When you want to learn a skill, a good strategy is to identify the essential subs-kills, and train each of them individually [Deconstruction, Isolation, 80/20], with the scope of eventually putting them back together [Integration].
Meditation is Attention training.
Attention (along with Meaning) dictates the quality of your experience.”
“If Meditation represents a sub-skill, what is the skill?”
“Experiencing life FULLY.
We might call this Experiential-Depth, or Aliveness.”
