Cleanse your mind!

We cleanse our body regularly to get rid of dirt. In the same way, our mind requires cleansing. During the day, we go through different thought forms from human interactions, watching TV, reading newspaper, etc.. All these activities leave some impression in our mind. It becomes vital to cleanse the mind and rest in your own energy to completely heal yourself daily. Your energy is your best healing agent.

One of the simple ways to do this would be to observe the breath. There is a Zen saying.. Sit like a mountain and observe the thoughts as if they are floating clouds. Allowing the thoughts to flow through becomes easy when the awareness is on the breath. If the awareness moves from breath to the thoughts again, bring it back to the breath and settle with your breath.

If you are already into meditation, focus on the gaps between the thoughts, if you could feel it. Stay in the thoughtless state even if it happens for brief moments. Breath also shall be very shallow in that state. One reaches this state with ease if the prana moves through sushumna (breath balanced in both the nostrils). One could even walk and observe the thoughtless state. It is resting in the awareness itself. Rest in yourself and cherish the inner peace!
