Essential Wisdom – Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Breath and mind are linked like body and mind. Breath sorts out the imbalances in the body and the mind. It is the secret of life which we have forgotten.
Let go of all impressions…Be hollow and empty. Think fresh and feel free.
Don’t go to God as a beggar. Prayer is not necessarily asking for something. Prayer is gratefulness; a recognition of the huge tidal waves of love that God is showering on you every moment.
Leg to of all efforts, search and desires, for He can be felt only in deep peace and stillness.
