In India they recommend that we go to bed at 10PM and get up at 6AM.
To meditate first thing in the morning… and last thing before bed.
To keep the mind connected to that which is imperishable.
To find peace through the breath… breathing with long breathes in and out, that allowing the vital energy of the body to flow.
To eat simply… vegetarian with yogurt, nuts, and lentils, as the main sources of protein.
Thus each night we wash away some of the soot of life from the lamp of the soul with sleep… allowing the soul to shine bright… and join Creator, Creation, and Universe for a short while.
It’s so important to do these simple things that are in essence more important that any aspect of life, for without them life starts to degrade and we end up feeling depressed, passionless, and alone.
Living simply brings peace… and great rewards for the mind/body and spirit.
