“Meditation applies the brakes to the mind.”
—Ramana Maharshi, 20th Century Hindu sage
Over the past several years I have become increasingly fascinated by my meditation practice and other mindfulness activities.
In my experience, meditation has never stomped on the brakes to bring my mind to a complete stop.
It does, however, help me tap the brakes to slow things down, so that I may take in my inner and outer worlds at a calmer and more peaceful pace.
Where might meditation and other alternative mindfulness practices help you slow down your mind to more fully experience your days at a more optimal pace?
