Daily Meditation

Kindness is the oil that reduces the friction of life.


  • Let what you think pass through your consciousness like clouds through the sky.
  • In walking meditation: notice the thought, return to the walking, notice the thought, return to the walking.
  • Your goal is to live in a simple, direct way - without cluttering up the mind with wanting things, hating things, judging, taking too much, worrying, or doubting.
  • When the mind is constantly bombarded by stimuli, it becomes overloaded and exhausted. We may be unaware that we are doing it, but by thinking and worrying we are using up tremendous amounts of energy. The tension put on the mind by worries, whether real or imagined, can use more energy than physical work. When worries get out of hand, energy resources are strained. Mental fatigue sets in, often resulting in wear and tear on the physical body as well. It is important to set aside some time each day for the mind to unwind and recoup its energies.
    Whenever you experience mental tension, try breathing slowly and rhythmically for a few minutes while you concentrate on the breath. Yogic breathing exercises will may take conscious effort, but develop your ability to calm the mind using your own thought power. This leads to an experience of inner peace,with physical relaxation following the mental relaxation.
