Alan Watts cuts to the root of what meditation really is all about. Meditative practice has no motive, except to experience the present moment. The goal of meditation is quite simple. To be within the here and now. To divorce yourself from symbolic language, hangups of time and experience the immediacy of the present moment. Meditation practiced for this reason transcends everything else. Once this fundamental point is grasped, you can meditate in anyway you see fit. Twisted criss-cross in a yoga pose or sitting on a park bench in a busy city street.
