Meditation practice can only be fruitful when we learn how to come to the center of our being. Coming to the center means living mindfully with clear understanding and always being alert. This is very important for meditation practice. We don’t have to literally sit down to meditate.
It is important to understand our mind to be able to let thoughts come and go. It is only when we are able to understand our state of mind that we will be able to let things pass and not react to them.
