So meditation is not against action. It is not that you have to escape from life. It simply teaches you a new way of life: THAT YOU BECOME THE CENTER OF THE CYCLONE.

Your life goes on, it goes on really more intensely -- with more joy, with more clarity, more vision, more creativity -- yet you are aloof, just a watcher on the hills, simply seeing all that is happening around you. YOU ARE NOT THE DOER, YOU ARE THE WATCHER.

THAT'S THE WHOLE SECRET OF MEDITATION: that you become the watcher. Doing continues on its own level, there is no problem: chopping wood, drawing water from the well. You can do all small and big things. Only one thing is not allowed and that is, YOUR CENTERING SHOULD NOT BE LOST. That awareness, that watchfulness, should remain absolutely unclouded, undisturbed. Meditation is a very simple phenomenon.
