What is meditation?

In the Christian tradition, there are different kinds of meditation.  Some methods use imagery or Scripture as a way of reflecting on our Redemption. 
Contemplative meditation is about spending time with God without using mental images or active prayer.
We sit in silence, aware of the present and conscious that this is where we can meet God.    
In other words, we are not thinking about God and we are not talking to God.
It is about giving loving attention to God and allowing Him space to work in us.
We open our hearts with a trusting attitude and stay in the present.
We let go of our thoughts, plans or daydreams and focus our attention on the present, remaining alert and aware of our surroundings.
