Život se odvija u sadašnjosti, tamo gdje najmanje živimo

U meditaciji, naš se um često naziva majmunskim umom. Baš kao što majmun skače s jedne grane na drugu, naš um skače s jedne misli na drugu, nemiran, nesposoban da se umiri.Ovaj majmunski um uvijek traži uzbuđenje, misleći da je nešto bolje odmah iza ugla, nešto što jedva čeka biti otkriveno.
