Meditation gives you a sense of self that isn't prescribed by another person or ideology. It lets you get in touch with yourself in an honest, intimate way that we're not used to in this modern society. Quietness is key, both mental and physical.
Meditation allows you to see the things in calm and peaceful state of mind. It’s a time where you focuses on mindfulness of things around you and things that yet to come. An experience of deep self, having the opportunity to reflect and contemplate about your life and where you’re going to. And most importantly the divine connection with your creator.
