47:Impermanence

Tidal windstorm
Splits trees and rock,
Yet cannot last a day.
So much less, man’s work.

When a storm hits, an entire ocean of wind and rain is spent upon the land. Leaves are turned inside out, branches are torn, and even hard granite is worn away. But such gales seldom last an entire day. In spite of the tremendous amount of force that is released, the storm cannot last.

The above is an excerpt from:
365 Tao: Daily Meditations
by Deng Ming-Dao

This book is one of the books that are part of my daily readings and study of Tao. The other books include:

I read and contemplate the passages before breakfast, before lunch, before dinner and before bed. I find it very convenient to do this using the Kindle version on my mobile phone.

Daily Meditation

After my morning readings I do the 31 minute version of the Sa Ta Na Ma / Kirtan Kriya meditation. I have found that the Sa Ta Na Ma / Kirtan Kriya meditation with its combination of sitting, mantra and mudra helps to calm me and get my Acquired Brain Injury brain, with Monkey Mind on steroids, centred first thing in the day.
