Calmness of Mind

“Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.” 
― James AllenAs a Man Thinketh

We all have so many thoughts churning inside of us. A kaleidoscope of thoughts.  Some chaotic, many questioning and perhaps a few just being hard to accept realizations. All fragments of ourselves within ourselves. All of them, undoubtedly, affect our internal balance.

Sometimes we have to find a quiet place within so as to make sense of the craziness without. A quiet place to restore our spiritual equilibrium.

    We are built on memories. We survive on our memories, yet we lose most of them when we come back again and again. De je Vous is our fleeting link to those memories. Very good post Grady

      Thanks Johnny! What you say is so true.. we are built on memories, we survive on memories and hopefully we learn from our memories. We all hold the key to our ‘answers…’ we just have to listen more carefully.

    A moment of no thoughts is blissful – difficult to achieve but can be done so with practice.
