To be free from wants is to be free from waste.

Message for the day 

Expression: The one who is free from wants is the one who is free from expectations. When there are no expectations, there is not too much thought about what is not there or what should be there. Since the mind is free from all these kind of waste thoughts, whatever is done is the best.

Experience: When I am free from wants or desires, I am able to always remain content. I can then appreciate and enjoy everything that comes my way, and do not expect anything both from situations and people. So the mind is free from waste thoughts and questions.

Principles for the Body To Make Early Morning Meditation Successful (cont.)

. Freshen the self before morning meditation, with a shower or a hot drink. Avoid speaking before the meditation.

. Sit with an upright posture, away from the walls or comfortable chairs. If the body is ill, awaken but sit comfortably, and do not force the self.

. Have a good circulation of fresh air.

. Subtle lighting creates an atmosphere of meditation. If it is too dark it will lead to sleepiness; if it is too light there will be eye-strain.

. Burn incense sticks ("agarbattis"), only if it doesn't irritate your and others' eyes and throats.        

In Spiritual Service,
Brahma Kumaris
