Keep the mind open. Even in the world, let any busyness happen in a bigger space. Let that space dominate your day. If you lost it because of identification with work, food, pleasure etc, can you quickly come back and say: my awareness is bigger than this? Keeping a mantra in the mind can remind us: then you will easily come back to it. Do not get caught up in limited thinking so that you lose it. The practice should be to carry our meditative consciousness today in everything that we do. That is how we are trying to meet with Her: expand the mind. Then she can meet with us!

A simple tool is breath awareness. Each little break where you can just sit: come back to breath awareness. In walking, in exercising, stay in breath awareness.

Keep a silent mind, opening up the consciousness, not limiting the mind to beliefs and opinions and limited patterns of thinking. Can you always stay open and hold everything as a possibility only? Don’t hold it as reality until you have the fullness of the experience. Don’t let your immediate perception be your reality. Stay in more awareness and let that grow!

If someone tells us something, we tend to believe it immediately. Hold it as a possibility, not as the reality. What is a possibility today may not be a possibility tomorrow.

Let the practice today be to keep a silent mind, observant mind, intuitive mind. Keep the mantra and practice breath awareness. Open up to a higher awareness!

Summary:

  • Keep an open and silent mind, even when in activity
  • Practice breath awareness throughout the day
  • Keep a mantra in the mind

Enjoy the practices!
Love,
Prabha

(Each day, I’ll try to give some notes and a short summary of the main practices outlined in Guruji’s morning talk, shortly after the program finishes!)
