“There is an eye of the soul which. . . is more precious far than ten thousand bodily eyes, for by it alone is truth seen.” 
 Plato, The Republic

In this section we will examine key elements of our practitioner’s day. I have repeated the important aspects of each timeframe for easier reference.


6:30 AM.
A 5-minute time of reflection on the six heart virtues.

Naturally, each person is free to meditate for the length of time they feel is appropriate. In most cases though, 5-10 minutes is a nice compromise between brevity and lengthiness. These energies are very potent and the quality of the work is more important than the quantity of time spent in each session.

As explained elsewhere, the practice of when-which-how lays the emphasis on practice over the more traditional concept of sitting for long periods of time in meditation. Nevertheless, meditation and times of reflection still play a role in emotional self-mastery.
