From the practice of meditation, we can experience ourselves as what we are and who we are altogether. Sitting practice is a way of discovering ourselves. This approach is compatible with the mystical tradition within Christianity and other religions, where people rouse themselves in a particular moment to connect themselves with God. When there is the highest moment of being roused or turned on, your mind is open, on the spot. There is nothing happening; therefore everything happens.
