An excerpt from True Love by Thich Nhat Hanh:
     “Meditation is the practice of looking deeply into the nature of your suffering and your joy. Through the energy of mindfulness, looking deeply into the nature of our suffering makes it possible to see the deep causes of that suffering. If you can keep mindfulness and concentration alive, then looking deeply will reveal to you the true nature of your pain. And freedom will arise as a result of your sustaining a deep vision into the nature of your pain. Solidity, freedom, calm and joy are the fruits of meditation.”
