When I am sick how can I meditate? When I am anxious, how do I meditate? Ajahn Brahm teaches that the "Emperor's 3 questions" cuts through a lot of the obstacles in meditation.
The Emperor's 3 questions are
- When is the most important moment? Now.
- Who is the most important person? The person right in front of you.
- What is the most important thing to do? Care.
