Elevated Dreams

Calming or stilling the mind is like trying to tame a wild tiger. Sitting in meditation, the mind jumps around all over the place, it is only with practice and more practice that we can try to elevate it and make it still. Practice everyday with sincerity, concentrating on the vital life source, concentrating on the breath. Inhalations and Exhalations are never ending, just like the waves of the ocean, one leading into the other, as I sit crossed leg on the floor, I enjoy the breath, this is my life, this is my love.
