The Subtle Mind
These past two weeks of my life have been a roller coaster of emotions because my daughter was rushed to the hospital and was in the ICU for almost two weeks. She is still in the hospital and we don't know when she will be able to come home. Practicing the subtle mind is something I started doing without even knowing it. It has helped keep me sane. I have enjoyed both "the subtle mind" and "loving kindness" exercises. I really don't have any negative comments about either. I love trying out knew types of meditation techniques and using the ones I like over and over. Both of these techniques really help me to stay calm. In my opinion you cannot be healthy if you do not take care of every aspect of yourself. You must nurture mind, body and spirit. You may be a top athlete with a great physique but if you do not take care of your inner health you only look healthy on the outside. Personally working on my inner health encourages me to make sure I take care of my physical body. Our mind, body and spirit works together to create wholeness, but it won't happen by itself, we must nurture and train ourselves daily.
