The whole point of meditation is not to follow the path laid down by thought to what it considers to be truth, enlightenment or reality. There is no path to truth.
The following of any path leads to what thought has already formulated and, however pleasant or satisfying, it is not truth.
It is a fallacy to think that a system in daily life for a few given moments, or the repetition of it during the day, will bring about clarity or understanding.
