Trungpa Rinpoche used to say the only time people actually meditate is when the bell rings.

The rest of the time we’re mostly thinking about food, having a sexual fantasy, feeling resentful about our life, figuring out ways to edit and manipulate the meditation technique itself, or just thinking random, mysterious thoughts!
