As the gardeners of our own tree of life, if we want to do just one thing to strengthen every area of our life, we need to nourish the unseen spiritual part of ourselves—that which lies within.
Ancient sages from India, Tibet, China, Japan, South America and beyond all taught that quietening the mind and experiencing inner silence is the age-old formula for maximising our success in life. Only by transcending (and Transcendental Meditation is the simplest way to get there) can we take our mind out of stress and into silence. The more we enliven our infinite field of consciousness within, the more we align ourselves with the natural laws of health and cultivate our own inner wisdom (the final wisdom in this book).
By nourishing our silent source, we spontaneously begin to live more in tune with nature’s cycles. We naturally desire more health-promoting food and exercise. We gain greater clarity about what relationships and vocations most nourish us, and we are better able to negotiate our way through the complexities of modern-day health advice. By ‘watering the root’ (our non-physical spiritual core), we are better able to ‘enjoy the fruit’—better health and success in every area of life.
If you only want to do one thing to promote your health and happiness, transcend and enliven the silent source of all that you are.
Transcend Transcend Transcend!
