I was raised a Quaker and a Quaker meeting (service) is an hour of meditation. I got away from it for years but I do meditate at times now and do find it rewarding. Even though I like it I don't meditate often. No idea why. Any library has books on it or look up and go to a Quaker meeting. They are good people and no they don't dress like the man on the oatmeal box. That was 300 years ago.

I ride my Sporty. Watching the front wheel eat up all those miles you become one with the bike, the wind blowing in your hair and taking your worries and tension away.
Your instinct kicks in. You know how to take the corner - your exact speed and angle of approach. You ride without thinking, leaving your mind free to concentrate on any dangers and obstacles in your way. You know that if that kid steps into the road, you won't stop in time - so you ease off of the gas a little.
The kid hears your roaring engine, the v-twin firing a rapid twin bass beat warning of your approach. You speed up and roar past leaving the miles and your woes behind you on the road.
After all, tomorrows another day with plenty more roads to thunder down.
Thats my kind of meditation.

It allows me to see another persons viewpoint, or play back events that have happened during the day. Sometimes it allows me to remember things from my past long forgotten.
I am using a physical means, riding my Sporty, to enhance my mental activity. Some people use certain herbs and plants to achieve the same affect (Native American Indians on a dream quest). Others concentrate on a physical object to enhance the effects (Crystal meditation). At the end of the day, I have achieved something positive through my form of meditation and I feel better for it.
