Meditation can resolve many issues, but sitting all day in meditation and prayer you become dependent on believing that someone or something will fix you and the way you live. The universe works in different ways than our minds. Meditation alone cannot keep everyone on the path. Action, karma yoga, must be taken in order to put to test and put to life what you have received in meditation. Just reading these words cuts the ego thought in half. When the words are finished, then you find that other thoughts come in. You rarely even finish listening to the answer when you start on your next question or next thought.
