Reflections from "No Ajahn Chah", Meditation Master, Thai Forest Tradition

"Time is our present breath.   You say you are too busy to meditate.

Do you have time to breathe?   Meditation is your breath.

Why do you have time to breathe, but not to meditate?

Breathing is something vital to people's lives.
If you understand that meditation practice is vital to your life, then you will feel that breathing and meditation practice are equally important.
If your mind is happy, then you are happy anywhere you go.  When wisdom awakes within you, you will see the Truth wherever you look.  Truth is all there is.


It's like when you've learned how to read.  You can then read anywhere you go. There are people who are born and die and never once are aware of their breathe, going in and out of their body.  That is how far away the live from themselves"
