Reading about meditation will not accomplish very much. It might give you some nice feelings, but they’ll pass.
Meditation is a practice of self-transformation. You have to do it to experience the effects.
Here are some words from one of my fellow Scotsmen, the mountaineer, W. H. Murray:
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
