The practice of meditation, the practice of looking deeply, helps us deal with our wrong perceptions. If, through meditation, you are able to address your wrong perceptions, you can be free from the suffering they inevitably cause. This is because not only do you have an inaccurate perception of yourself and others, but others hold misperceptions about themselves and you, too. The result is fear, hatred and even violence toward each other. Dealing with wrong perceptions through meditation is the only way to peace.
