Sit and do nothing

If you have nothing to do, it is better to simply sit and do nothing.
It is always better to do nothing than to do something to fill a gap, because in these moments you are not losing anything and you are not collecting any rubbish.

Unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood

When it's time to get dressed, put on your clothes.
When you must walk, then walk.
When you must sit, then sit.
Just be your ordinary self in ordinary life,
unconcerned in seeking for Buddhahood.
When you're tired, lie down.
The fool will laugh at you
but the wise man will understand.

Witness your mind

Just witness your mind
and the meditation will be happening.
And once you have got in tune with your being,
you know the way, you know the how.
Then it does not matter where you are.
Alone or in the crowd, in the silences of the forest
or in the noises of a marketplace, it is all the same.
You can simply close your eyes
and disappear inwards.
