Purify the mind

I'm not going to attempt to explain what purification of the mind is because:

a) it's not simple
b) we have our own idea of what this is

All I know is that when I have a clean, smooth running mind then:

a) I have more energy
b) the days are easier to get through

The trick then is to aim to purify the mind everyday and keep it from getting clogged up and generally muddy. Hold moments of purity and stillness in the mind and then soak them into the body. Use the calm, relaxed body to soak into the mind. Gently move between the body and mind. Focus on the clean sensation of effortless presence and take your next moment from there.
