We have to work with what resources we have. We have to begin small, in an ordinary and simple way. Our actual present situation of what we are is our stepping stone. And we start from a simple technique such as walking or breathing. This is by no means expensive. It is a natural thing. We can breathe and walk—we have to breathe anyway; we have to walk anyway. That seems to be the starting point of meditation.
