from living life through experience and through constantly seeking knowledge, as well as having had the fortunate chances to happen upon many enlightened beings, I say yes to both, brother...
Meditation---simply quieting the mind...working your mental muscles...difficult at first, but every time you do it it will get easier!
learn about symbols
learn to communicate with your subconscious
learn the true meaning of love..not the media created meaning
do unto others as you would have done to yourself
have an attitude of gratitude...
compare your life to nobody or nothing, save for the bum lying in the gutter on occasion in order to ground yourself...
you are a multidimensional, electromagnetic, superhuman being!
and uh...yeah have a great day..
