The Importance of Pondering



We pursue a silent mind during meditation and we work with our habits during our daily life . But we also need to find time between these two opposite so as to bridge the gap to help pull them together. To find the space in your daily life to be still and to ponder your relationship with yourself, life and touch your inner guru is also an essential part of practise.

It is quite difficult to try and find space in an already busy life. I’ve not been able to allocate an hour, but have managed to make a 15 minute space at the end of work where I try to sit and reflect.
