When our mind is stirred up by events taking place around us and is biased by negative emotions such as anger or jealousy we can’t make the best decisions. When our mind is running amok, when our train of thought goes so fast we risk getting it derailed, we should not make any decisions. Our mind is just like a glass of water that has a handful of sand in it. As soon as we stir it up, the water will get opaque, every drop of it will be filled with sand. But if we leave the sand quietly settle at the bottom of the glass, we will not only see through the completely transparent water, but we will also be able also drink it carefully. Our mind is just like a glass of water. When it is calm and not rumbling we can see clearly and make the best decisions to date. We should always let our mind settle before making a move. Just think about it, we wouldn’t drink a glass of water saturated by sand. Why would we make decisions in a crazy haze?
Spending a single day without taking one deep breath mindfully and concentrating on how mother nature’s air fills our lungs to nurture us is just simply wasting a day. Spending a day without being grateful for what life has provided us with is just skipping a day in our life. We should never skip a single day.
We should always stay calm regardless what life throws at us. When we encounter hardships, the first observation we must make is whether it is in our reach to solve the issue facing us. If a progression can be made by us it is good, because we can make it disappear by dealing with it. If it is an issue out of our reach, it is foolish to worry about it, because we have no tools to change it in its nature. We must stay calm either because we can deal with it, and the best way to deal with something is with a mind of clarity, or we cannot deal with it, therefore our worrying will do no good, but a lot of harm to ourselves.
We all seek happiness,
but don’t seem to find.
Treasure’s always with me
in the haven of my Mind.
