Marcus Aurelius - on being in the here and now

"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." - Marcus Aurelius I think here 'reason' means the complete presence of awareness in a given moment. I have read some other of Marcus Aurelius' works and get a feeling that his usage of the word reason (which itself is a translation of some word in latin) is different from our usage of it (as of 2015). It probly means 'present moment awareness' or 'complete attention' or 'calm focus'.

Meditation - It helps to do it regularly


What is a good time for meditation?

Any time is a good time for meditation but the best time is the time that works best in your schedule. For deep, long meditations, it is best to find a time when you are not in a hurry and not worried about the time.

The advantage of the Middle Path

The middle path is advantageous because it saves the energy needed to recover from constant swings between extremes. Taking it reduces pressure and increases momentum towards our goals. In meditation, by remaining constant between the two extremes of in-breath and out-breath, we learn the middle path in a natural way.
