Without Meditation there would be few stops/pauses during the day to put the attention on Silence/Stillness. It is not that it isn’t always there, it is, however, the attention will be on what is going on in the world, school work, thoughts about everything and anything under the sun. And then there is a stopping that comes with Meditation, things slow down and the attention is drawn towards what doesn’t move. The things of the world, all the problems seem to fall to the side and are not important. As one arises from Meditation, those things re-appear yet don’t have the energy or strong pull towards them that was there prior to Meditation.
