Love, Desire and Meditation

The whole idea of mediation is not to get to anywhere different. It's being more awake to what's really going on. The big misconception about meditation is that it's just an unconscious state. You actually become more aware of your surroundings and everything that comes into your peripheral vision. The biggest change is that you become more present and less anxious and fearful. And you have less desire. If you didn't desire anything, you wouldn't fear anything.
