Searching for Quiet...

Buddha.jpg

We are all in search of some quiet these days. Whether we look for it through yoga, meditation or simply sitting in a park and enjoying nature's sounds... Many of us are searching. But as soon as we look for the quiet, it often seems the opposite comes. Our minds become so loud with the chatter, the to do lists, the I forgots, the I should have etc etc It goes on and on.  Then we get frustrated because we can't achieve the quiet. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali remind us that "we can't make the mind thoughtless immediately. It is impossible." So instead it offers us the idea of simply shifting our thoughts to positive ones only. So if we cannot be quiet then let us be positive. Think positive, selfless thoughts and think only of bringing others happiness. Bring peace to others; bring peace to yourself. ~ॐ
