Focus on What is Important
Be kind, truthful, and honest. Discipline your thoughts and actions. Concentrate on essentials and disregard nonessentials. Think about what is most important to you and focus your attention on those matters.
~Roy Eugene Davis
Our meditation practice teaches us to be observant of our thoughts, words and actions, so we can take the next steps and progressively control them more and more efficiently. Self discipline is really just doing what we know is right in the highest way. A steady focus on what is most important can simplify life and give us more time for what matters. Begin with something as simple as noticing how much time we spend on TV or social media. This is the path to freedom.
