What Is Real Never Ceases To Be

Image
What is real never ceases to be.
The unreal never is. The sages who realize the Self know the secret Of what is and what is not.
(Bhagavad Gita)


I have selected this verse as it talks of the truth and the reality of existence. When we are able to contemplate the idea of truth with the clarity of a peaceful but focused mind, we can prevent getting caught up in one perspective, misunderstanding, and being distracted from our aims. Yoga and meditation are excellent tools for cultivating our ability to do this. A long term and dedicated practice is necessary as the thoughts in the mind will always change.
