Daily Dose for the Mind

Everything in this universe is evanescent. Because it is evanescent, it is also precious. Spend this precious moment wisely and beautifully. The mind cannot have two thoughts at once. See if you can think two thoughts at exactly the same time. Well? Is it possible? We can be consumed by anger for a long time without realizing we have been angry. Similarly, we are easily lost in thought without knowing we have been thinking. Even when we are awake we are no different from a sleepwalker. We do things without the awareness of doing them. Just because our eyes are open does not mean we are awake.

Being awake means that you know what is happening within your field of awareness. Rather than blindly following your thoughts and feelings, stay awake and recognize the state of your mind before it is too late. At mealtimes, we often do not realize how much we’ve eaten until we stand up. Spiritual practice is all about being mindful of each moment. If you are aware in the moment that your stomach is getting full, then you are spiritually advanced.
