Imagine yourself dropping onto a soft bed of grass in a fragrant meadow with a murmuring brook flowing nearby. As you lie still, head propped on arms, gazing silently at the clear blue sky and the occasional cloud floating by, your mind grows quiet––a feeling that ‘All Is Well’ effortlessly seeps in. There’s nothing more you want from life in that moment.
What if it were possible to feel that way right here, right now without going anywhere? Yes, this is indeed possible since this state of wellbeing and calmness is our natural state. What gets in the way is our mind. If you pause right now to simply watch your thoughts you will be amazed at how many thoughts rush through your mind within a matter of seconds. It takes very little to distract us. In fact our mind is a like a sponge which effortlessly collects thoughts and impressions as we go about the business of living. Imagine then how dirty this sponge is likely to be?
On the other hand have you ever noticed how your mind goes silent and you lose track of time when you are focused on doing something you love like listening to music, or pursuing a hobby such as gardening or painting? This is because when the mind is completely absorbed you effortlessly move from a distracted, noisy mind to a silent, focused mind.
And a silent focused mind is the gateway for effortlessly entering our natural, meditative state, one in which we feel utterly content and calm. Therefore it is valuable to learn the art of nurturing a quiet mind, one that remains stable despite the whirlwind of activity, emotions and challenges we face daily.
