"People think meditation is the spiritual supermarket, but it's really the dump." <br />
Personally, I don't meditate to "shop" for spirituality, mediation is simply an ex<x>pression of my spirituality. I meditate to calm myself back into the present moment. I meditate to awaken to (and appreciate) what's happening right now and not cling so much to what happened in the past or what I want to have happen in the future. Sometimes, for me, mediation is about acknowledging and tending the negative things inside me - fear, anger, anxiety, etc. and especially in those times, thank goodness for the "dump"! Perhaps "compost pile" is a better term than dump, though.

You clearly have NEVER achieved a meditative state. Most uninformed people think if they sit in a posture and close their eyes it's meditation. Lying in a bed tossing and turning isn't sleep either, it's TRYING to sleep.<br />
Get the help of a guru who can awaken your kundalini, then tell me meditation is a dump! You ain't been there yet to qualify knocking it!<br />
Meditation is a fourth state of consciousness.
