A lot of our preconceived notions come out of ignorance, so it’s important to clear away as many unnecessary expectations as possible when you meditate. Just stay with the breath as it comes in and out. That’s all you have to know.

The skills you learn in meditation don't fall off your lap when you get off the cushion. You learn to be steadier, more precise and sensitive, and you can take those skills to use in the rest of your life -- where they show their true worth.
