Buddhist meditation with healthy ways of living

Buddhism is an oriental philosophy of life that gives advices for reaching happiness, kind human relationships and high level of skill. The basic advice of Buddhism is the same as of all skills: attentin. In Buddhism one should have a wide awareness that includes the present moment, one's own life, one's social relationships and one's relationship to the wide world. This is called meditation and should bring happiness. Compassion is encouraged and said to make one's awareness better, more meditative, i.e. widely aware and living the present moment with the senses. Awareness brings skills and wisdom with which life becomes easier. Awareness of the senses, of one's own feelings, of wise ways to live and be a member of the society bring content to life and wisdom to meet life's challenges wisely.
These work best with an emphazis on naturality. That is why the basic Buddhist exercise, sitting meditation, consists of letting go and just sitting, enjoying the senses, the present moment, following one's breathing. Naturality also means following one's feelings fully and compassionately. It also appears to mean healthy natural ways of living, at least that cures the course to something more familiar and surely healthy in psirit. Poems seems to have this kind of mixture of awareness with one's feelings too and healthy wise things to do.
