Ajahn Chah

Don’t think that only sitting with the eyes closed is practice. If you do think this way, then quickly change your thinking. Steady practice is keeping mindful in every posture, whether sitting, walking, standing or lying down. When coming out of sitting, don’t think that you’re coming out of meditation, but that you are only changing postures. If you reflect in this way, you will have peace. Wherever you are, you will have this attitude of practice with you constantly. You will have a steady awareness within yourself.

Cultivating steady awareness

All religions are like different cars,
all moving in the same direction.
People who do not see it have no light in their hearts.

— Ajahn Chah

If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.
