Someone asked Buddha, “How shall we meditate?”
Buddha replied, “Whatsoever you do, do it with awareness; this is meditation. Walking, walk attentively, as if walking is everything; eating, eat with awareness, as if eating is everything; rising, rise with awareness; sitting, sit with awareness. All your actions become conscious, your mind does not travel beyond this moment, it remains in the moment, settles in the moment – this is meditation.”
What many of my students struggle with is clearing their minds for meditation
– we have tens of thousands of thoughts every single day after all.
