I recently began thinking about meditation due to a video I watched on Sensus with Fr Ripperger who suggests it. I only know meditation as simply pondering the things which are God's. We do this when we pray the Rosary and at other times as well like Mass. Sometimes while doing other mundane things also. That said, like many I have probably a better knowledge of eastern meditation if only because I was raised in a very "open" new age family and it has so penetrated our society here in the West. I am wondering if this book is a good read for the novice person attending RCIA? If not would anyone have any suggestions as to a good starting point for one wishing to understand and practice meditation on God's mysteries?
