Opening the blinds.

Once Buddha was travelling with his disciples. While they were passing a lake, Buddha told one of his disciples “I am thirsty please get me some water”.

When the disciple reached the lake, he saw some people washing clothes at the lakeside then he noticed a bullock cart passing through the lake. As a result, water had become muddy and turbid. The disciple thought that “How can I give this water to Buddha to drink”. So, he returned and told Buddha that the water is muddy and isn’t fit to drink.

So, Buddha told his disciples all right let us take some rest here. After half an hour, Buddha asked the same disciple to go back and get him some water. The obedient disciple agreed and went to the lake.

This time lake was surprisingly clear. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked fit to be consumed. He collected some water and brought it to the Buddha.

Buddha looked at the water, then looked up at the disciple and said “See what you did to make the water clean. You just let it be, the mud settled down on its own – and you got clear water. Your mind is also like that! When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to struggle with it to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless”

 

So, when you are lost, unclear about what to do? How to solve the problem in front of you? How to end the circumstance you are tangled in? Just for a while drop it. Drop the struggle, stop overthinking. Stop your thoughts and take a break. That’s what your mind needs right now. Go do something relaxing or something else that can calm your mind.

Calming your mind will ease the pain, break the pattern of negativity, will stop the noise of thoughts which will eventually lead to clarity. And clarity will make a room for positive thoughts, new strategies, and possibilities.

Just give your mind time to recharge itself because the solution to all your problems lies under the piles of your emotions, scattered thoughts and mental exhaustion.
