Via Daily Dharma / How to Meditate Anywhere

Anytime you can go out and keep all of your visual and auditory senses alive—looking above eye level, hearing behind you as well as in front of you—you’re performing meditation in the natural world. You’re poised for any stimulus coming from anywhere. It’s as down-to-earth as you can get and still be up in the sky.

—James H. Austin, quoted in Zenshin Michael Haederle’s, "This Is Your Brain on Zen"
