meditate on this

What metaphors do you use for meditation?

For example, I've heard meditation described as standing on the bank of a river, where the river are thoughts and emotions, or as being an empty room with open windows, where the thoughts and feelings pass through (and hopefully don't linger).

What metaphor(s) describe the experience of meditation for you?
