Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Elevate Your Mind
"You must be very careful about what you
read or watch on TV, particularly at night.
Because, if you go to bed with lofty ideas,
the lofty ideas are slowly accepted by the
subconscious mind during the night, and you
become a better person in the morning. So,
always keep next to your bedside some good
books, holy books, with which you can elevate
your mind. If you take some exciting books
or TV shows, you will go on reading or watching
instead of soothing your nerves. These will
stimulate your system and you won't get sleep.
Most of those who complain of sleeplessness
do so because they do not know what to read at night.
"God bless you. Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
