Reaching Freedom

5.27/28 When the sage of silence … closes the doors of his soul and, resting his inner gaze between the eyebrows, keeps peaceful and even the ebbing and flowing of breath; and with life and mind and reason in harmony, and with desire and fear and wrath gone … he in truth has attained final freedom.  - The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 5)

harmony

Having overcome desire for the frivolous, fear and anger, the person in pursuit of ultimate reality approaches harmony. Harmony promotes a deeper connection with all that is.

stillness

Meditation can help us reach that state of harmony; as we become more still, the spirit within us has more sway over our conscious mind. That’s especially true if we desire that guidance. The harmony in turn leads us to a deeper contact with inner reality. Harmony and meditation, feed each other. Regular meditation allows us to move in harmony through-out the day, doing that in turn deepens our practice of meditation.

Daily Affirmation: Today I move in harmony and stillness.
