“The skill of becoming more mindful and present
and compassionate is something we may learn sitting on a meditation
cushion. But this capacity for awareness helps in many other
ways: in computer programming, playing tennis, lovemaking,
or walking by the ocean and listening to life around you.
In fact meditation is really the central art in all other
arts. “ -Jack Kornfield
