In the Stillness We Find

In the Stillness We Find

“Through return to simple living Comes control of desires. In control of desires Stillness is attained. In stillness the world is restored.” Lao Tzu

 It never ceases to amaze me how quiet my heart and mind can become when I choose to still the demons that threaten that very peace and quiet. Sometimes I forget the most simplest lesson Buddha has taught me of being still. I never take enough time to simply be still and meditate and I allow the world around me to become convoluted by my very own thoughts. Things have been so erratic lately I need to remind myself to take a little time with my mala beads and say my mantra at least once daily. As chaotic as my life has been lately I need to do this every chance I get. We forget sometimes that that very stillness of our hearts and minds will only serve to help us, particularly in times of difficulty. Om Mani Padme Hum, peace be with everyone today!
