You are what you eat. Think about what babies eat. Simple, clean food. What you put in your stomach is the major cause of all the problems…
When you do everything for the sake of doing, not just for your benefit, you retain your joy.
The teachings may vary, but the central teaching is always the same—to know our True Self.
Your association, your thoughts, your words, your music, your food, your exercises should all be producing a sattwic condition, a tranquil condition, to calm the mind and nerves.
When you do slow simple deep breathing, your mind is so peaceful. Just sit quietly. Breath slowly in and out. Let the mind be attentive to the breath.
the ‘I’ never changes. It is eternal, ever clean, ever pure. It is never born, never dies.
You are what you think. You can make yourself by thinking the right thoughts, or you can break yourself by thinking wrong thoughts.
So the great teachers often presented the higher truths through stories—and the stories are very simple. In fact, the truth itself is very simple.
When you do everything for the sake and joy of just doing it, as benefit for the whole world and not for your own personal benefit, you retain your joy.
