This is a conscious choice that we make as souls.

Recently a client asked me to introduce him to meditation.

After I explained the basic ins-and-outs of it, he asked, “So it provides relief? That’s why people do it?”

I chuckled at this question, as it was trying to apply a goal-oriented mindset to something that inherently is a process.
