David Life speaks about the importance of meditation on this video.
He packs a lot of wisdom into these two minutes … but for me … his reminder of how we change and control the ” ground of being” for each day was powerful. Listening to the news on the radio first thing in the morning fills your mind — both conscious and the more important unconcious mind == with thoughts and words and images of violence and death and problems of the world.
Thats why David life says the importance of meditation is in setting your ground of being for the day.
