You can not be told wisdom,

Loosing self-control is an experience.

You can not see this pattern,

Stand at the seat of consciousness.

You can not be told to write your epic,

Write out your story with your inner life in mind.

You can not be told to meditate.

This is how you ‘stand at the seat of consciousness’.

You can not be told to find your bliss.

You will experience it!

You can not be told where to start.

Why not learn to meditate each day for 30 minutes for the rest of your life.

Seriously, Grand Opening Of Indigo @ Mayfair Shopping Center, Victoria, B.C., Canada

Okay, Merry Christmas, gift card splurge at the bookstore, bought a calendar and books.

Okay, you may not like what I bought, but I highly recommend them all.  Just reading this is good enough.

I got the ‘Insight from the Dalai Lama 2019 Calendar.

I also bought some philosophy books.

Okay, if you don’t read anymore, be sure to pick up something from your local bookstore.

I love philosophy:  Socrates, Epictetus, Ludwig Wittgenstein,  Meditation, and Gratefulness.

I could tell you all the sorted details, but just let me say, I have lots of reading to occupy me for the foreseeable future.  

Cleaning House

The physical need to control our environment.

The physical need to control our body, mind and soul.

Setting up a meditation practice at home is about all the above.

Pick up a good chair, preferably with arms (so you won’t fall over).

Pick a good room, to decorate or not, but to commit to your practice.

Meditate everyday (about 30 minutes), rain or shine, first thing in the morning:  as early as possible (I start at 4:30 AM, you can start at 6 AM).

Let’s do it!
