As the holidays approach, I wanted to share a quote/story by Junaid Tahir that I just received to remind you of how to live with more joy, less pain and enjoy the holidays and end of this year:

“An old Master instructed an unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it. ‘How does it taste?’ the Master asked. ‘Not good at all,’ spat the apprentice.

“The Master chuckled and then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake. ‘Now drink from the lake.’ As the water dripped down the young man’s chin, the Master asked, ‘How does it taste?’ ‘Good!’ remarked the apprentice. ‘Do you taste the salt?’ asked the Master. ‘No.’

“The Master sat beside the young man, took his hands, and said, ‘The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains the same, but the amount of pain we taste depends on the container we put it into. So when you are in pain, enlarge your sense of things… Stop being a glass. Become a lake!’ ”

The holidays can be so stressful so use all of the body/mind techniques that you have learned and practice being a lake! You can also think of receiving and giving some practical gifts like CDs, books, Yoga sessions, Movement for The Mind sessions, and one-on-one readings to enhance the quality of your life and your loved ones.
