Actually, at the risk of making myself sound like a sycophantic sucker-up, I'm with Tiltbillings, here.
The Buddha taught us about the origin and cessation of suffering, and illustrated that we lead lives through the three poisons.... and as such, gave us a remedy, an antidote.
This wasn't something to be taken three times a day, with meals, and with a glass of water....
This is a remedy we need to take, orally, intravenously, topically, through ingestion, libation and inhalation all the time....
So actually, every moment of dialogue, exchange, interaction and engagement with another person, via whichever medium you wish to mention, within any given topic of discussion, is an opportunity to be mindful, and to practice.
Right View, Right Intention, Right Speech, Right action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Awareness, Right Meditation.
All of these, are part of every single discussion.
Adhering to them, is the practice.
Practising them, is continuous.

Translation: Just to stir things up seemed a good reward in itself. I am sooooo happy - How on earth could I be otherwise?! http://www.armchairadvice.co.uk/relationships/forum/
