“The capacity to be patient, to bear with others through thick and thin, is within the reach of anyone.”
– Eknath Easwaran
How sweet it is to love, and to be dissolved, and as it were to bathe myself in thy love.
– Thomas a Kempis
In these times, a common prescription for a day packed with troubles is to go jump in your hot tub. Relaxation starts immediately; for a time, at least, the body is at peace.
Now imagine a hot tub for the mind. That is what meditation is; it can bathe your mind in peace. This requires a lot of practice, but when you have learned to jump in the hot tub of meditation at the end of a day, instead of rehashing problems with your co-workers or downing a double martini, you can close your eyes, start in with an inspirational passage, and let the accumulated tensions of the day dissolve.
