I totally disagree, Steve!
It's not about what you think, it's about where you think it from.
Meditation is an existential need.
Not because it helps the collection of bones and muscles and nerves we might think is us. Though it does.
But because it helps us be who we really are, without all that clutter and clatter of circling thoughts, desires, attachments, and distraction.
When we achieve peace, even for a moment, we are our real selves. We are at one with wisdom, we see clearly, we are our true spiritual beings.
It might only last a moment, and one has to be a mighty meditator to get more than a taste, but it is gold.
Are we not gold?
