Daily Dose of Inspiration

“Whether our action is wholesome or unwholesome depends on whether that action or deed arises from a disciplined or undisciplined state of mind. It is felt that a disciplined mind leads to happiness and an undisciplined mind leads to suffering, and in fact it is said that bringing about discipline within one’s mind is the essence of the Buddha’s teaching.”

~ The Dalai Lama

It’s also the essence of Bikram’s beginning yoga class. You may think you’re just working your body but really you’re using your body as the mechanism to control your mind. He did this on purpose because he knows that when you rein in your mind you’ll take back control of your life.

There’s method to the madness after all, my friend. And it’s all with your best interest at heart; creating a healthy body, healthy mind, and a happy life. That’s what it’s all about.
