TM is a method of relaxation. Bible meditation is a method of sanctification.
TM emphasizes freeing the mind of thoughts, it is thinking about nothing. Bible meditation fills the mind with the highest and most complex thoughts that a human can have. Meditation focuses on the eternal, inscrutable God.
Bible meditation is expanding – the discipline expands our minds and our capacity to know and love God and His Word.
Bible meditation is exhausting – to really consider things that are so high to us is tiring. It is work, but it is sweet, exhilarating work.
