- If we embrace a natural way of living, even a single day each week, we give the planet a much needed sabbatical from our constant demands.
- Imagine that you are living as a hermit in a case, completely alone and free from the demands and limitations imposed by work, family, and the outside world. There is really nothing to keep you from living in the present moment. You tend to your basic needs of food, warmth, and cleanliness. You engage in quiet contemplation. You appreciate the joy of simply being alive. After this meditation, try to incorporate some hermit living into your everyday life.
- With a peaceful heart whatever happens can be met with wisdom.
