Moving Meditation 2
Meditation in activity is a thousand times superior to meditation in stillness. (Hakuin Ekaku)
Fragments from imaginary dialogues
“Why is meditation in activity superior to meditation in stillness?”
“I call them moving meditation and still meditation.
Both are beautiful, and both have the same end: practicing concentration, achieving and maintaining inner stillness.
The difference is, still meditation requires preparation, whereas moving meditation does not.
You can practice moving meditation anywhere, at any time.
Wherever you are, you can choose to turn the next 5 minutes into meditation. (Time Focus)
Whatever you’re doing, you can choose to engage in it as meditation. (Activity Focus)”
