When you meditate, what are your goals.  I know it is recommended not to have expectations, but on some level you do want to know what you want to experience.  Maybe it isn't that planned, but for me I kinda need it to be.  Today I talk about two different types of meditation and what they are called in buddhist circles.  It's another way to make the spiritual side of meditation more accessible.
