Meditation cultivates those states of mind that are conducive to peace and well-being, and to eradicate those that aren’t. If we examine our life we will discover that most of our time and energy is devoted to mundane activities, such as seeking material and emotional security, enjoying sensory pleasures, or establishing a good reputation. Although these things can make us happy for a short time, they are not able to provide the deep lasting contentment that we long for. Sooner or later our happiness turns into dissatisfaction, and we find ourselves engaged in the pursuit of more worldly pleasures. Directly or indirectly, worldly pleasures cause us mental and physical suffering by stimulating attachment, jealousy, and frustration. Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external circumstances. If true fulfillment can’t be found in worldly pleasures, then where can it be found?
