For I, meditation is realizing that every truth can be found within the ones self, and not outside oneself. For happiness, people will look forward, backward, left, right, up and down. But rarely do they look within.
Meditation allows one to realize the divine child within themselves, and to break every chain of mental slavery that Babylon has put upon them.
It is the realization that beauty is in the perception, and not in the object, and that life in it's original perception is heaven.
With that knowledge, meditation for me means happiness, ultimately.
All the best,
