Instead of insight, maybe all a man gets is strength to wander for a while. Maybe the only gift is a chance to inquire, to know nothing for certain. An inheritance of wonder and nothing more.
Meditation is not a process of learning how to meditate; it is the very inquiry into what is meditation.

How little inventiveness there is in man, Grave copier of copies, I give thanks For a new relish, careless to inquire My pleasure's pedigree, if so it please, Nobly, I mean, nor renegade to art.

inquire often, but judge rarely, and thou wilt not often be mistaken.william penn
