Mind Like Water

We should develop a mind like water. A pebble drops into a still pond. It causes a splash. Then ripples. Then the ripples smooth out until the surface of the pond is smooth again.

We cannot prevent disturbances from entering our lives. Stuff happens. Sometimes we are prepared. Sometimes not.

The disturbances can cause ripples that gradually smooth out. When we learn to calm our minds, we can deal with the disturbances.

Yoda in Star Wars sensed a disturbance in the Force. Sometimes we sense a disturbance in the Spirit. We breathe. Focus. And allow ourselves to be like the water in the pond letting the ripples gradually smooth.
