Meditation, prayer, and contemplation are all states of solitude in which one can reconnect with the source of our creation by communing with that source through our “inner self.” Think about those individuals who spend expansive amounts of time in meditative practice: the nun, the monk, the rabbi, the yogi, the guru, and so on. We revere them for their enlightenment and spiritual elevation yet they did not start out their lives this way. They made a conscious decision to pursue their respective paths, a key component of which is rediscovering and reclaiming one’s connection to the divine through meditation. It is evident in most such persons that a transformation has occurred that brings great insight and wisdom.
