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?
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"
