@albartjhon,
Well, Alan Watts describes best when he said “We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment.”

@NoSuchThing,
My mind wanders into different things while I am small activities like walking , watching tv , brushing teeth and is never focused on what I am doing . I started listening to meditation audio book . And that does help . I also tried "Be here now"method and that helps too .
But I am not able to do them daily as I am a student . Please guide me through this ....
