Dictionary meaning of the word meditation is contemplation. While doing work , reading or engrossing in other activity we are already in the state of meditation. When we forget even our physical existence in any activity its akin to samadhi which literally means equanimous intellect. Baba Faqir Chand who challenged the conventional religion of saints by his rational thoughts says that even if you see all lights , hear all bells & whistles, still there would be two entities experience and experiencer. By any depth of rational or metaphysical thought experiencer is greater than any damn experience. I read somewhere on web that force greater than all bells , whistles , even greater than love which is essence of universal spirit is the force of will.
Will created consciousness & matter.
Premise of living master propounded by sant mat is contradicted in one of the texts of sant mat from which they heavily quote verses Adi Granth/Guru Granth Sahib.

Pothi parmeshwar ka than [Guru Arjan]
This book is abode of spiritual light/God.

But they would never take up these verses in satsangs , it would expose their brain washing / gurudom agenda.

If we examine carefully, force of will when correctly used has brought great revolutions , triumphs, innovations , immortal works of mind in material universe & conversely utter destruction of the nations/ persons who have used it in abusing/oppressing others.
