First off, let me say that I am a Christian woman, but I have tremendous respect for all world religions.
Contrary to popular belief, meditation is not strictly something that you find in Oriental religions.
When Jesus went to the desert for forty days, he practiced meditation, according to the Bible.
Similar examples can be found in all major sacred books, from the Torah to the Koran.
Meditation is simply a way to reconnect with your inner self, what we religious people call the “soul.”
As such, there is probably nothing as sacred as meditation, as I truly believe that it helps you get closer to God.
