I don't suggest people meditate to channel music or to otherwise improve their lot in life. My own purpose in meditating is to grow closer to God.

I don't suggest people meditate to channel music or to otherwise improve their lot in life. My own purpose in meditating is to grow closer to God.
But since you mention disappointment and frustration, I'll say that most of us experience this in our outward lives--striving for success, however we define that...trying make a relationship happen, developing a skill, whatever... The best expectations are no expectations--especially in meditation. It's for us to make the effort, and the result is in God's hands.
