In segment 13 of the How to Meditate series it's time to let go of some degree of logic. The benefits of meditation don't come from more 'Do', it's actually the opposite. When it comes to meditation, LESS IS MORE. You relax, you slow down, you finally experience life in real-time rather than chasing after the past or future. This is what "being present" means. This is JOYFUL.
