The Continuum of Mind and Body


“Thirty minutes of moving our body or thirty minutes of meditating on compassion lead to vitality and happiness. The more we understand this, the more we do it. The more we do it, the healthier it feels. Through healthy activity, happiness of body and mind become the continuum. We begin to understand that unhappiness is simply the result of wrong engagement. We are engaged in activities that are not leading anywhere, or we have given up to some degree. Thus we must keep our discipline. We are discovering that far from making us into drudges, discipline brings us joy—because it teaches which activities to cultivate and which to discard.” - from Running with the Mind of Mediation by Sakyong Mipham
