Symbiote, I agree. Trying, making an effort, ruins everything in meditation. It is more natural to meditate in a way that is effortless to your body.
Grim, I understand your point. Meditation is not a quest. You receive, you heal. However, I think anything can be the drive at some point. There are thousands of different things that might motivate people to meditate, thousands of things to meditate on, from pleasure to pain, from emotions to mathematics, from music to complete silence.
In the end, however, the only way to know you're doing it right is if it feels right. That's what I meant with the word ''pleasure''.
The pleasure... to simply be alive!!!
Maybe I should do something...
Yes, I think I should.
