As people grow older, those who seem to be the healthiest and happiest are those who live more balanced lives—looking after body, mind, and soul by exercising the body, stimulating the mind, and satisfying the soul by making God’s Presence within themselves an integral part of their daily lives.
If you don’t like something, change it. That may be easier said than done, because what needs changing was probably created by the ego level of your mind. To make a real change you must change your consciousness, by giving up the ego and connecting through meditation to the God level of your mind.
When you hear someone say, “I don’t even trust myself anymore,” the self they don’t trust is the personal ego—a false sense of self that creates misery and failure in life. But in every person there is also a Real Self, which is one with God’s Presence. That is where you can always place your trust.
Life requires constant adjustments. You can make those adjustments at the ego level of your mind, with all of its limitations and fears of the unknown. Or you can let the God level of your mind be in control of all necessary adjustments. Which do you think will have better results?
