Use down time to good advantage.
(take a mini vacay, go get cultured at the local museum, read a book, watch a good movie.)

"The affairs of the world will go on forever. Do not delay the practice of meditation."
-- Milarepa

In our busy schedules, we can often complain that we don’t have time to meditate. Sometimes all it takes is 1 minute to just zone inward. But if we are sincere in our desire to go inside, we can create our own moments of stillness in the midst of our activity.

Stopped at a traffic light? Do some deep breathing. Waiting in line at the bank or store? Repeat an uplifting word such as ‘love’ or ‘peace.’ Riding the train to and from work? Value these times as an opportunity to close your eyes and go within or to say a little prayer.

"Wherever you go in the midst of movement and activity, carry your stillness within you. Then the chaotic movement around you will never overshadow your access to the reservoir of creativity, the field of pure potentiality."
