My room is a work in progress. Over the past few months I've attempted to make my room a tranquil resting place. I believe that three elements can help sleep and decrease stress: religion, fire and water. Today I added Siddhārtha Gautama to my room *what you see to the left* and placed him at the highest point, overlooking everything in the room. Why is this so important? Siddhārtha Gautama was the founder of what we now know as Buddhism. Not only a spiritual teacher he taught the concept of living in moderation, this is not called the 'Middle Way.'

Now more than ever do I as well as us as a society need to incorporate more consistency into our lives, dodging the temptation to live beyond our means and too much self-indulgence.
