- The past is rich with detail, the future a blank canvas. We might be tempted to pitch our camp in the past, but beware: this will impede your self-development. Make nostalgia a treat to enjoy with friends - not a way of life. Any unfolding present moment is richer than a used-up moment in the past.
- Substitute an hour on the meditation cushion for an hour on the couch watching television.
- Peel an onion as a meditation. Just peel.
