To Live Is To Think

An excellent posting at Brain Pickings this morning on the value of meditation.

Meditation is:

often mistakenly interpreted by non-practitioners as non-thinking, an emptying of one’s mind, a cultivation of cognitive passivity

In fact:

meditation requires an active, mindful presence, a bearing witness to one’s inner experience as it unfolds

In other words:

to live is to think

So says Montaigne.
