They Do Not Study Meditation

Let them measure us, study us, take pictures of our brains.

Let them come close and ask us questions. Do you count? Do you close your eyes? Do you let your thoughts float by?

Let them proclaim that a new treatment is on the scene, one for anxiety, one for addictions, one for lives gone astray, for our modern disease.

Let them think and talk, write and give presentations, observe like scientists observe from the back of the room, ready to take notes.

They think they have it, but it cannot be grasped!

They think it cures, but it cannot be swallowed!

They think they found the answer, but the question still pounds at the door!

What is it!
