Be Actively Calm
I will be calmly active, actively calm. I will not become lazy and
mentally ossified. Nor will I be overactive, able to earn money but
unable to enjoy life. I will meditate regularly to maintain true balance.
Our regular meditation practice opens up the witness consciousness that
lets us examine the contents of our mind and enables us to nurture those
thoughts which are useful and discard those which are not. Meditation
provides the mental distance that helps us refrain from over-reacting to
what others say and do. When we notice we have lost that true balance,
meditation can bring us back into harmony with all of life.
