Many people today have a spiritual thirst and hunger for silence and for prayer that is as urgent in its way as the material needs of the world. Modern people need a way to return to this health, a way that must be new and old: a traditional way that meets people where they are.In The Selfless Self, Laurence Freeman looks at the essential elements of meditation: silence, stillness, simplicity. He expands on the power of meditation to transform the way in which we see our place and our responsibilities in the world and how it can help us to resist the pressure to conform to materialistic standards. As Freeman writes, "The wonderful thing about meditation, the spiritual journey into the cave of the heart, is that once we have taken each successive step of faith and the light has shone in that dark place, then that place is enlightened. Fear and the primal fear of death is transcended".
