In India there is a long-standing disagreement on the nature and purpose of meditation. One school of thought considers that definite–and conscious–evolutionary change is necessary for liberation; consequently meditation must be an actively transforming process. The other view is that the only thing needed for liberation is re-entry into our true, eternal nature. That nothing need be “done” at all except to perceive the truth of ourselves.

Even most of gurus also have been teaching delirium in the name of meditation and spirituality because of their ignorance.
When you fall in love with this peace, you're home free. When you're not in love with this peace, then no matter what you attain, what you experience, it will not fully satisfy you.
The purpose of this peace is not to give you more money, not to heal your body, not to make you happier, not to make you enlightened. The purpose of this peace is peace itself. Because that is fulfillment itself.
