Joy Mills says that meditation is a journey. It is an inward journey of self-discovery. The Greek philosopher Plato said that within each one of us is the recollection of an inner world, a world in which we are whole and free from the façade that we present to the outer world. In order to take this inner journey, it is advisable for the practitioner of meditation to travel lightly and release his or her attachment to ideas, places, and things.
