Email from Branko Ivatovic:
When the soul is doing, soul can do great, or little, and this depend on the situation whereby is it in present moment involved of real intention to follow truth or is not!
Next is short Zen story where these two monks decide to ask their master the ancient question of smoking and meditation...
The first monk asked : o honorable master, can I smoke when I meditate?
The master lost is temper, he was furious and threw him out ...
The other monk goes to the master: oh venerable master, can I meditate when I smoke?
The master said: "Of course you can meditate while you smoke..." So, I like to meditate when I dance, here at night on my deck overlooking the valley, in the rainforest in Australia, half an hour from Byron Bay, with a million stars in an endless Silence ...
Do meditator can regularly doing anything when meditate? Not, of course, because this is not meditation when in higher states (conciousness) doing any outside work.
Do meditator can meditate when smoke? Yes, meditation is as intention welcome in all what meditator doing.
Fundamentally, meditator must follow gradual way in meditation through awake, sleep, deep sleep, turiya and turiyatita states of conciousness (in all real gradual combinations first four).
If "meditation" from one time can't give freedom of many (all) doing in meditation, very very is probably, meditator isn't go into deeper state of conciousness, and very probably haven't real interest and intention for change character on the better! In many cases this "meditation" only wrong call meditation, because this "meditation" haven't nothing deep with real meditation, and this "meditation" is only outside circle of thoughts!.
Only is one reason for washing hands with water, only when water is cleaner than hands.
With rules we never can realized states beyond rules. Best way is only through pure conciousness or satvic way, all others of course have their side effects.
If can't follow peace beyond thoughts when doing anything, meditator is usually very very far from real states of conciousness, because this peace only can became enter (outside door) of conciousness.

Like combination any dimension space and any dimension movement, conciousness is beyond all this combinations.

Like dot, which in all outside, conciousness is in all inside.
