One aware about two
Maybe the meaning of life is to bring the two forces together in the one, the conscious mind.
An unconscious mind just feels split into good and bad feelings and doesn't know why.
Meditation is more than sitting... once you have reached the meditative state of consciousness there is no need to sit at all... :-)))
But when you have lost your awareness (the golden view) while dancing in samsara maybe it is good to sit for a while again and find back...
