Very true Profmad, that is the key to getting to know yourself spiritually. We all have a soul and you can tap into your presence by mediation. Mediation is easy but since we live a fast paced life its harder for some people to allow them selves to take time and bask in there own presence. Once you achieved your mediation status then you may ask yourself a few questions and learn more about your self. There is not just one answer to the meaning of life there is a selection and one of them is a connection to your inner being and getting to know yourself truly.
If you don't know how to mediate just follow these steps, When your lying in bed and getting ready for some shut eye, just allow yourself some quiet time. It might be tough and if your having trouble silencing your mind then focus on your stomach area, and allow silence to to envelop you. Your mind hates silence becasue we are always thinking, just ignore your mind's objections.
