Whatever the objects are—the breath, or the movements of the abdomen, or the activities of the body—your mind, as it were, goes to these objects. That hitting of the object is mindfulness. When you have mindfulness, combined with energy or effort, your mind stays with the object for some time. The stone, after hitting the wall, when it is a wet mud wall, stays with the wall. It gets stuck in the wall. In the same way, the mind goes to the object and, when it is helped by energy and mindfulness, stays with the object.

When you practice vipassanā meditation, you are instructed to be aware of everything that is happening to you, to notice everything that comes to you at the present moment.

To “know” here means to know thoroughly and not superficially. ” Sometimes, meditators happen to breathe short breaths.
