The looking glass and the ointment

Lean into a mirror and you’ll see all the blemishes, zits and warts protruding out of your face.

Sit with your eyes shut for more than 10 minutes and you’ll see all the blemishes, zits and warts protruding out of your mind.

But unlike an actual mirror, meditation doubles as both the looking glass and the ointment.

Sunday work

I woke up earlier than normal, thinking, “I could get a lot of work done.”

But it’s not that kind of work that I want to do today. Not the typing kind. Not the tweeting kind. And definitely not the faux-work of getting a kick of dopamine from social media.

This passage from The Bhagavad Gita explains it best.

The man who in his work finds silence, and who sees that silence is work, this man in truth sees the Light and in all his works finds peace.


P.S: Thanks for reading and listening. Big week ahead with 3 episodes of the podcast releasing Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Cheers, and here’s to your good health.
