Neuroscientists are presenting more and more solid proof that meditation is the only way you can transcend the conditioned cycle of pain-pleasure, and reach the ground of stability and calm. You will be able to see the world and respond to daily life from the state of higher consciousness. Yes, all your daily routine is useless if you have not meditated upon your higher Self for at least 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening!
