Yesterday, we ran an interesting survey on the page, where we asked everyone the question, “What is the Best Advice You Have Ever Got?”  We got some great responses which I thought would be beneficial to share with all of you as well.

This is the first time I am sharing directly from the fan page so if you receive my articles directly in you email, please note that this article might not render correctly as it contains Facebook code.  If that is the case, please visit the website directly in order to read the article.  Here is the link to my blog page, where you will find all my newest articles, Mastery of Meditation and Yoga Blog Page.

For my part, the best advice I ever got was the teaching from J. Krishnamurti which instructed that one should not settle for anything but the Highest in life.  This simple piece of advice has been instrumental in inspiring me on my own journey and has always reminded me not to settle for anything less that the Ultimate Truth itself.

This advice is analogous to the following wonderful Buddha quote, “There are only 2 mistakes you can make in life.  First mistake is not to take the first step and the second is that having taken the first step to not go all the way.”  Here again the advice is to reach for the very highest in life.  Reach for enlightenment.

Below there are other great pieces of advice from various friends. Some that stand out to me are the following…

Miz Bell advises, “Live like you are dying.”

Diana Hernandez advises “Never stop being you.”

Terry Lee Lawrence advises, “The body is a vehicle, the mind is the motor but it is the soul that is the driver!”

Thomas Martin advises, “Do not delay your spiritual practice. Start today.”
