Motivating Ourselves to Meditate   

Rolf tells the parable of the Sufi pandit who, when asked for identification at the bank, checks his mirror and says, “Yes, it’s me.” This story exemplifies the two ways of knowing: directly and indirectly, being and doing. Knowing ourself as an aspect of being is a process that brings us to meditation. We need to know both how to meditate and how to want to meditate.
