Meditation exercises lead us to a point where the contact with our inner self is established. Then only real meditation starts. We follow an inner voice that leads us slowly into the inner world.
Real meditation happens; we cannot force it. Real meditation flows spontaneously from within, it is a gift, a grace, not an achievement by ourselves. The achievement is to remain silent and concentrated within, everything else will be given to us.
Normally, it is not so easy to find the right way in this inner world alone. A spiritual master who has the capacity to identify with the student and lead him inwardly in his meditation is almost always necessary at this stage.
