- The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.
- One school of Vedanta (see 523), Advaita Vedanta, believes that the world is an illusion (maya) created by Brahman. Realizing that we are our own immortal souls (jivatman) and that these are not separate from Brahman, we tear down the veil of illusion and are liberated. It's impossible to achieve this change through intellect and reason alone: advaita is a state of transcendence that arises through deep understanding (jnana). Ponder the lessons of this tradition in your spiritual quest.
- Stop grasping and transform your attitude.
