“And it is a superb aid in helping us stay in the present moment.
.
.
The Thai teacher Ajahn Chah used to repeat the same advice to us, almost like a mantra, no matter what came up:
.
.
Keep it simple, and stick to the present moment.
.
.
Those words are equally valuable to a beginner just starting out and to the most advanced practitioner reading this book.
.
.
They are still valuable for me.
.
.
If you are learning about meditation for the first time, you may decide that you might want to try to sit now, for ten minutes or so.
.
.
Fine.
.
.
But don’t think of it as ten minutes.
.
.
Just sit for this moment.
.
.
Then the next moment.
.
.
And so on.”
.
.
.
.
My two cents:
.
Master one breath, travel inside your nostrils with your breath, become one with it.
