Am I thinking or meditating?
When I meditate I keep attention to my body and mind. Then I will see them in terms of 1st ,2nd,4th Noble truths. I think 3rd Noble Truth is a result of other 3 (however I think about the four stage of sainthood as well. (Not as an attachment, for the purpose of understanding)
