This video is the best I’ve seen describing the practice of meditation. Sakyong Mipham explains beautifully the importance of having a mind/ body connection in order to live in the present state. If your mind is truly connected to your body it will not wander off, worrying about the future or the past. It will instead stay focused and present in the now. Meditation is key to living a formless life.
This was one of the first videos I watched which helped me to “wake up” and live in the present moment. It is totally worth 8 minutes of your time. If this helps you, Tolle has many other videos out there which are equally as good.
