We expend a lot of effort to improve the external conditions of our lives,
.
.
but in the end it is always the mind that creates our experience of the world
.
.
and translates this experience into either well-being or suffering.
.
.
If we transform our way of perceiving things, we transform the quality of our lives.
.
.
It is this kind of transformation that is brought about by the form of mindtraining known as meditation.
