as things they are

Meditation is like..

"in water, you let the dust to settle down so that water becomes very clean, also very peaceful and even still. If the water is still, the surface is like a mirror and it would reflect the surroundings as things they are. Meditation is to help us to see things as they really are..."  ~ Yifa, Buddhist nun

This is the best definition of meditation I have come across. This is a clip from the video lecture as part of my Coursera course on "Buddhism and Modern Psychology" by Robert Wright from Princeton University.
