What is Meditation?
I found this quote today on page 15 of a little book called Art of Tea. It says:
WATCHING IS MEDITATION. What you watch is irrelevant. You can watch the trees, you can watch the river, you can watch the clouds, you can watch children playing around. Watching is meditation. What you watch is not the point. The quality of observation, the quality of being aware and alert—that's what meditation is.
