Quiet Time


In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.  ~ Deepak Chopra  ~

When you are facing chaotic situations, change your perspective and ask yourself if the situation is going to matter a year from now. If not, let it go. Learn to let go of all the stuff you can’t control. Focus on the present, the here and now, and the joy you have in your life. Put your energy into something you actually can control, and smile!

“As spiritual searchers we need to become freer and freer of the attachment to our own smallness in which we get occupied with me-me-me. Pondering on large ideas or standing in front of things which remind us of a vast scale can free us from acquisitiveness and competitiveness and from our likes and dislikes. If we sit with an increasing stillness of the body, and attune our mind to the sky or to the ocean or to the myriad stars at night, or any other indicators of vastness, the mind gradually stills and the heart is filled with quiet joy. Also recalling our own experiences in which we acted generously or with compassion for the simple delight of it without expectation of any gain can give us more confidence in the existence of a deeper goodness from which we may deviate. “ ~ Ravi Ravindra, The Wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras: A New Translation and Guide by Ravi Ravindra ~

“What it takes to realize everything is fine around you?
A road trip to the mountains where your soul dwells in the echoes of the winds that carry fragments of clouds with them.
What it takes to realize world is going back to chaos and infinite hurry?
End of the aforementioned road trip…” ~ Crestless Wave ~

“It’s a lack of clarity that creates chaos and frustration. Those emotions are poison to any living goal.” ~ Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free ~
