The leading exponent of mindfulness meditation, Jon Kabat-Zinn, urges us to be less concerned with "doing" and more concerned with "being". It's quite poetic, until you begin to ask what he is actually saying. For meditation isn't just about "being", but just as much about "doing", even if you do it with closed eyes. It is a practice, and its long-term psychological changes help you develop less rigid modes of behaviour.
