According to the Yoga Sutra, the goal of yoga and meditation is to calm the fluctuations of the mind.
When I sit in meditation, my goal is to calm my thoughts, the "fluctuations of my mind," and to be present. Being present is a long way toward calming the mind, because let's face it, most of these thought fluctuations are about the past or the future.
