There are two things! The first is the misunderstanding about clearing the mind. Forget about clearing the mind, it is about being at ease with the mind instead. The second is that it is all about oneself. Meditations is not about ourselves. Well OK, maybe a little bit. But it is so much bigger than that. It is about our relationships with those that we love, our respect for one another and our ability to understand and listen to each other. Only then can we experience true peace of mind.
