Is there a place you can go within your mind to get away from the stress, the anxiety, and the worry? A place that invokes both harmony and bliss? That place, resides in the life happening all around you right now.
Try to set aside 5 minutes each morning just to be still. Center yourself by simply observing the environment that surrounds you. Listen to the songs of the birds; the smattering of rain upon the rooftops. Notice the wind as it gently sways the trees and shifts the leaves. Hear the sounds of cars passing by; the water flowing downstream, the people chatting.
Sit, just as a piece of life and observe, listen, feel. When we take this time to just be, the outer world comes alive and brings peace to our inner world.
Next time you find yourself in an anxious or worried state, turn your focus outward. Pause and observe, breathe and get present. Allow the life that is happening around you to center you.
All life is connected in some way, remember this, and let it bring a peaceful stillness to your turbulent unsettled mind.
