Brain Food for Action

Cheerio

I just read an article by Deepak Chopra about inspiring your brain.  It’s nothing we aren’t already aware of, so may it serve as a reminder to keep our minds out of the gutter and to offer it much-needed inspiration and “health:”

“Take care of stress.  Avoid dulling routine. Do something creative every day.  Read poetry, spiritual material or anything else that makes you feel uplifted.  Take time to be in nature.  Bond with another person who is heartwarming.  Pay attention to being happy.  Make sure you take time every day by yourself to relax, meditate and self-reflect.  Deal with negative emotions like anger and anxiety.  Focus on activity that makes you feel fulfilled.  Give of yourself.  Follow a personal vision.  Attach yourself to a cause that is bigger than you are.  Take the risk to love and be loved.”

Lama Love (& wisdom)

More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually.  -Dalai Lama
