This simple quote within itself is like a sutra. It needs to be explored, exploded and experienced to understand properly. In a way, this quote highlights an important part of the attained mind.

Why Proper Relaxation Is More Important Than Proper Exercise

Proper relaxation: This post is the result of a candid discussion I was having recently with a veteran heart specialist. During the course of our discussion, he said something that really showed things from different perspective. He quipped, "If only people give rest to their heart, it will say thank you". Coming from a medical professional with over 20 years of experience, it is a simple but very profound statement. The irony is that there is more awareness about health currently. More and more information, activities are being discussed, promoted for health. Then why the numbers of experiences shared about [...]

Why you should meditate. Right now! (5 reasons)

“Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak.” ~Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati You can do it anywhere, anytime: Meditation is awareness. About now. About yourself. Nothing else. Most of times, the reason you are not able to even start or think about meditation is that you have certain idea about how meditation is done. Something like this: source: pixabay Which is not true.
