    Hi Sam and Steve

    Though I am by no means an expert I've practiced various meditations off and
    on for nearly thirty years. About seven years ago I took up daily practice
    of zazen, which is sometimes confused with meditation. The way I understand
    it now (though I feel the use of the word "understand" intellectually usurps
    a Dynamic understanding which cannot be pointed to), zazen involves the
    dropping of all prentense; and I now understand all form of meditations to
    be prayers -- instilling images. If you care to share, I would be interested
    in knowing how prayer and meditation are different for you.

    Thank you
