Calming the incessant chatter of your mind provides you the opportunity to experience the deeper truth of who you are. Distracting yourself with busy-ness, engaging your thoughts by arguing with them or strategizing just increases the noise. There’s no harm envisioning what you’d like to create, looking for solutions or activating feelings you want to feel, but spending time ruminating about your troubles is counter productive. When you enter stillness, you are privy to a great truth known by mystics, saints and sages throughout history:
Everything’s perfect right NOW.
Steve and Jarl
