  1. I loved your explanation of meditation. The idea of letting go of thoughts, and continuing to focus on the breath or a candle can be applied to life in general. When I am doing anything in life, different thoughts can interfere. If I let them go and focus my mind on the task at hand, I end up doing it more successfully and efficiently, and enjoy it a lot more. Your explanation reminded me of this application to life in general. Thank you!

  2. Yes, Gil. Bringing it into daily life is important and very useful. Only when we begin to practice mindfulness 24/7, does it really start to stick and have positive impact on our life.
