What is the best way to start the day?
With a wholesome breakfast to give us the energy to accomplish our tasks during the morning?
Or a peaceful mental breakfast where we feed our mind so we can stay calm during the morning?
If we wish to experience peace during the day, there needs to be a peaceful power inside of us.
Our intellect cannot bring peace into our life.
We can study peace, but experiencing it is a different matter.
In the same way that we can study food, but tasting it is totally different, and a million times more satisfying!
For your instincts to be peaceful, there needs to be a profound experience beneath the head.
I encourage students who attend my classes to try and meditate as soon as they arise, giving them the best possible opportunity to be influenced by a peaceful mind throughout the day.
In this way we have a peaceful mental breakfast which we can then enjoy our physical breakfast with, making us empowered both mentally and physically for the day.
