What is the goal and purpose of meditation?

Last week I started a YouTube channel and my goal is to have a weekly video themed Conversations on the Spiritual Path. In summary it’s a Q&A with me.

Conversations on the Spiritual Path is an unscripted, raw, open and honest conversations about life and the spiritual path with me. It’s a setting for us to engage in a question and answer session as we dive into a range of topics including God, spiritual practices, exploring the mind, sustaining energy, life, death, after-life, reincarnation, karma, the path to enlightenment, fear, courage, how to uplift yourself when you are feeling down, discouragement, stress, abuse, parenting, relationships and so many other thought provoking topics.

This is how it works. You email a question(s) and I respond to it on video. In our very first episode of Conversations on the Spiritual Path, viewers from the Caribbean and St. Louis ask about the creation of God and the purpose and goals of meditation. You can watch the first episode of this video series below.
