Example text

Sit down on a chair if you have to, giving it  of your attention for as long as it takes to deal with it.  Daily Activities Where is awareness? What is it doing? What is it aware of?

Something is wrong with the way you are practising. You cannot practise when the mind is tense. If the mind and body are getting tired it is time to check the way you are meditating.

Every moment there is something to learn. So pay attention to the moment. You start feeling bored when you judge the experience you’ve experienced. Just know, keep knowing what’s happening as it is. Why you want to come back to what you’ve been doing before? You have this expectation that what you’ve been doing was so good!
