"If I live mindfully, I do not have to stop to meditate. However, to reinforce the reality of mindfulness in my life, it is also important to find a quiet place each day where I can sit still on a cushion, chair, rock, whatever. This moment of quiet allows me to listen to the interior voice that guides me. It is not like someone talking to me inside my head; it is a feeling of the correctness of my action or perhaps only an invitation to stand still." Claude AnShin Thomas, "At Hell's Gate" page 68
