30 years ago, I used to just meditate. I never thought it was a cure. Since I started, I found It is a cure when done correctly.
Meditation 1st, takes away the societal stress the ego puts on our souls.
Meditation 2nd, focus creates a flawless place away for our soul to experience freedom.
Meditation 3rd, is where our soul & body can achieve healing;- let go of sickness & complications entirely. Give them to God to amend.
