"What is Meditation?" (pages 4 - 6)

Just like Superman, Batman or Spiderman, it occurs to me that great realized beings have their own origin stories... what set them on the path to enlightenment, early trials and that first "Aha!" moment.

I tend to see these great teachers as regular humans--but through their dedication to inner searching for an answer to suffering and the wisdom they brought back--they became heroes.

It's kind of a conundrum... like any of my favourite teachers from when I was a kid or in high school, even when I meet them as an adult and know they are just "regular people," I feel a kind of respect and gratitude which I can't shake.  And I don't want to!  It goes even more for the teachers who managed to access deeper levels of consciousness and bring back lessons which they have shared for the healing of humanity... sometimes you can seem to "feel" their presence, even if they died years ago--which is a real mystery!

Next ones up may include Lao Tzu, Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj!  And perhaps a surprise or two.  Finally I will interview two of my living teachers in comic book form!

Wish me luck. Come along for the ride!  And some laughs along the way.
