Day 129

Are you still learning? Do you still study, keeping your mind active and challenged? The internet has made it incredibly easy to access information on almost any subject you can imagine so this is an ideal age in which to acquire knowledge and deepen our understanding of anything that might interest us. We tend to focus on a limited number of subjects at school or in higher education but we have the rest of our lives to broaden our fields of interest and learn about almost anything we like. Of course, formal study can enhance our careers and carry the satisfaction of a recognised qualification but I’m suggesting that we maintain the habit of stimulating our minds purely for the pleasure of learning. This is a rewarding pleasure we can pursue for the rest of our lives. So challenge your views. Examine other perspectives. Diversify your reading. Spend time in the company of some of the greatest minds that have ever lived. Learn from some of the greatest teachers who shared their wisdom in written form. Expand your mind. Keep learning.

Day 160

We live is a world that is flooded with information, images, distractions and stress. Do you ever take the time to switch off your mind and give it a well-deserved rest? One of the most effective ways to train the mind to become still is to meditate. The practise is so helpful to our health and well being that it should form an integral part of our daily routines. Ideally we should meditate when we wake and before we go to bed, learning to bring the mind to a place of natural calm and stillness. Simply relax and breathe gently and learn to ignore the constant chatter of your mind until it gradually gives up the lifelong habit of constant activity and becomes still. In the Vedic tradition, this is a treasured place of great wisdom and insight, of calm and power, of understanding and balance. If these precious gifts can be found in the silence of meditation, let us begin today and reap the rewards that can only be found in the timeless space of inner silence.
