Reading vs. Meditation

by Charles Feldman (Prana)
 
I was just looking through some of my old Cheri Huber books, and I don't remember which one she said this in, but she essentially said that people tend to prefer to read spiritual books because they feel inspired by them, and they tend to avoid meditation because they are likely to fidget in meditation, yet it is meditation that removes suffering from our lives. She did say that reading spiritual books is a precursor to meditation. Cheri Huber is a Zen teacher and author in California, who has written many books.
