Hi

From a book about meditation:

Yes there are some that can say they do not have a mind that never sleeps, but how true is that. If they never stop thinking then their mind has never actually been still, not the stillness that comes from a daily meditation routine.

--- Does the phrase "not the stillness" is correct? I would say "it is not the stillness..."

So aside from what meditation can not do for you and what it could do for you if you devoted yourself fully to a life of it, what can you get from meditating right away. In other words, what will be your reason for continuing once you start.

--- Is the phrase "to a life of it" correct?

Your suggested version is grammatically correct but it lacks the smooth, almost poetic, flow of the original.

And what does it mean? To devote one's whole life to it?
