–Stephen Batchelor, from Buddhism Without Beliefs
What is Meditation?
To meditate is not to empty the mind and gape at things in a trancelike stupor. Nothing significant will ever be revealed by just staring blankly at an object long and hard enough. To meditate is to probe with intense sensitivity each glimmer of color, each cadence of sound, each touch of another’s hand, each fumbling word that tries to utter what cannot be said.
In a sense everything you do can be meditation.
Some say everything is, but there's the problem with you.
If you are not present it is not meditation.
May the force be with you
