Two types of meditation
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“What’s the best time to meditate?”
“We can think of many types of meditation. Two of them particularly stand out: meditation in comfort and meditation in discomfort.
Meditation in comfort requires optimal conditions. Meditation in discomfort does not. In fact, meditation in discomfort requires suboptimal conditions – thus teaching you to adapt.
Ultimately, meditation is a tool. It’s important not to lose sight of the scope of the tool.”
“What is the scope of the tool?”
“To prepare you for life. The best way to prepare for life is in the turmoil of life.”
