Listen to episode 543 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: Finding Wisdom & Joy in Meditation. Edited and adapted from The Mastery of Destiny by James Allen.
Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: By concentration we may acquire the wonderful comprehension and vast power of a Caesar; but by meditation we may reach the divine wisdom and perfect peace of a Buddha — for while the perfection of concentration is power, the perfection of meditation is wisdom.
By concentration, people acquire skill in the doing of the things of life (in science, art, trade, etc.), but by meditation, they acquire skill in life itself (in right living, enlightenment, wisdom, etc.) Saints, sages, saviors (wise women and men and divine teachers) are the finished products of spiritual meditation.
