Look at Each Second

From Chapter 2 of Mindfulness in Plain English by Bhante Henepola Gunaratana:

Meditation ... is an investigation and an experiment, an adventure every time. In fact, this is so true that when you do reach a feeling of predictability and sameness in your practice, you can read that as an indication that you have gotten off track and are headed for stagnation. Learning to look at each second as if it were the first and only second in the universe is essential in vipassana meditation.

Worth putting in a box to remember:

"... look at each second as if it were the first and only second in the universe ..."
