Can I Practice Meditation If I’m a Christian?

I’m asked this question occasionally. And my answer is always the same. Of course! Meditation means returning to this moment with clarity and using this clarity skillfully with love and compassion. So it doesn’t matter what color your skin is, what religion you practice, what your age or sex is. Anyone can practice meditation and benefit from it.

Once I was talking to a Christian about meditation. We had been talking for a while, but I still felt I wasn’t getting through about the true meaning of meditation. So I asked him, “When someone is hungry, what do you do?” He responded, “Give them food.” I asked, “What kind of religion is that?” He then understood. We all have the capability to experience this clarity, love, and compassion, and meditation is a tool that can help us access and use these qualities in our daily life. Then it is possible to help ourselves and all of those around us.
