On the issue of meditation, you've been doing it for quite a while. If you had never meditated for a day in your life, would it have made any difference to your understanding of:

1. the universe?
2. yourself?
3. your peace of mind? or
4. any kind of unexplained experience including an awareness of lights, sounds, god, spirit, the tao, nonduality, oneness, or transcendental spheres of existence?

George, excellent questions. They fit in nicely with a blog post I was contemplating for today, so I'll meld them in with what I was planning to write.

(Of course, what I plan to write and what I actually write often are quite different, which points to one of the life lessons that I feel I've learned -- but I'll save that thought for today's blog post, if I remember it.)
