Found this gem in the archives buried beneath the rubble of a long rambling poorly written post. It may have been overlooked, but it's just as valid now as it was then. It's my daily mantra. My guiding philosophy. Feel free to borrow it if you like, or write your own, it may be helpful to you.
Wherever I am and whatever I do, wherever I work and wherever I live, of primary concern to me is focusing on my own personal cultivation, my daily routines of exercising my body and my mind, reading extensively, eating healthfully, lifting weights, doing calisthenics, running, walking, and getting back into yoga, and meditating twice a day, in the early morning upon waking and at night before going to sleep.
The personal cultivation of body and mind will be with me always, each and everyday of my life, from birth until death, from here unto eternity. Personal cultivation is my daily practice, my daily goal, a path that is both the journey and the destination, where each day I am arriving and departing, sitting still and moving on...a path that never ends.
