Is your mind all over the place?
Mine surely can be, especially in stressful situations.
Under stress we are often prone to get a case of “the monkey brain”. Thoughts attacking us from all directions, for no apparent reason.
The paradox is that in these very situations, we are in the most need of the calming effect of meditation.
Breathe in, breathe out, smile and compose. With this simple tool we have re-calibrated our mind and the state it is in, and we’re better equipped to face the situation.
We take control of our mind rather than letting it control us.
“Body on your seat, mind in your body, mind in relaxation.”
– Patrul Rinpoche
Such a simple concept, but not necessarily easy to master.
But the comfort is this… That the road to mastery is also simple.
All we have to do is take the first step, and dedicate ourselves to daily meditation. One step at the time.
Will you take that step today? Or perhaps you already have? Comment below – I’d love to hear your answers.
