Keep going — home

You always get somewhere, if only you go far enough! Sometimes one may feel or get lost on the way. But especially then, the same applies. Keep going! Go further, and you will get somewhere. Trust and confidence carry on and on. Stopping brings demise in most cases. However, most everyone likes to have a place to call home, to stay and return to after explorations. Fortunately though, the world is round. If you go all the way, you will come around back home — but from the opposite side than from which you left it. Thus it will look different. But if it’s really your home, you will recognize it and not pass by.

An inspiring quote

“It is the man who thinks he may live as freely as his unconsidered desires prompt him who does not see the reckoning of such an attitude. He is binding his life to a hollow dream if he persists in this thought. If he has had the experience of knowing his true self, there will never be any hatred for another.” — The Shariyat-Ki-Sugmad, Books One and Two, Paul Twitchell, p. 198

Sound mantra

You may enjoy a sound sample loop, such as the one of the tonality of the month, as sound mantra for contemplation or meditation, for upliftment, focusing, or simply for relaxation and regeneration as soothing background sound. Further, you could hum or chant along, for example using Ōṁ / Aum ॐ, HU, or another mantra syllable, and tune yourself to the fundamental.
