The purpose of meditation is to live our lives to the full. In other words, to come to the fullness of being or to realise our own full potential as human beings. In the words of Jesus, "I have come that men may have life, and have it to the full". (John 10:10)

To come to this fullness, we need to find our way to the depths of our own being. "The Kingdom of Heaven is within you," says Jesus. (Luke 17:21)

Meditation is uncovering this reality of the Kingdom deep within ourselves. Jesus has told us that his Spirit is to be found in our hearts. This Spirit that we are invited to discover in our hearts is the power source that enriches every part of our life.
