"Perhaps it would be a good idea, fantastic as it sounds, to muffle every telephone, stop every motor and halt all activities for an hour some day to give people a chance to ponder for a few minutes on what it is all about, why they are living, and what they really want". - James Truslow Adams. Nothing, nothing at all, is the first ingredient you must add to your life. the best way to break through any barrier is to access a point of perfect stillness in the center of your being, a self deeper than you senses or your mind. we modern, scientific thinkers are rarely taught that such a thing exists, much less how to connect with it. but every ancient tradition holds that from the still core of the self, this infinitely fertile emptiness, springs all that is authentic about you: your identity, your ability to recognize the truth, the real operating instructions of your life. practicing nothing can provide a sanctuary that no one can ever take from you. in the moments when your heart is tired, confused or broken, when you have no energy to do anything, you'll naturally turn to what your true self is telling you it needs: NOTHING. this is always a step - usually a first step - that will move you away from suffering toward joy....FROM THE JOY DIET
