Non-meditation

The Buddha said that all sentient beings possess Buddha Nature. Because of that we have this natural purity, peacefulness and power. We can rest the mind naturally because we are already in possession of these qualities. If one can rest the mind naturally, that's the best meditation. Non-meditation is the supreme meditation.

~ Mingyur Rinpoche

James's Comment: I am learning to rest my mind in the qualities of Buddha Nature so that I might be in a state of meditation at all times. This seems to me to be the best way to live life in this world. We can formally meditate but at some point we must stop that type of meditation and move on with our day. However, carrying the idea that we have Buddha Nature always with us helps us keep the benefits of meditation with us at all times.
