Here are some of the reasons I meditate in no particular order:


* It stops me getting in a pickle in life and when I get into a pickle anyway it helps me see how I got into it and how I get out of it
* It helps me see the diversity and beauty of life 
* It makes me settled and happy
* It gives me a way to see and work with my greedy, grasping, self oriented behaviour 
* It strengthens my capacity to persevere and realise my deeper aspirations and makes me less inclined to get torpedoed by distractions
* It calls me toward honesty and integrity
* it creates this very precious space where I can pause and sit with everything and wait for kindness and clarity to emerge
* it helps me to notice things

What are some of your reasons?
