Something to think about... From the tumultuous torrent to the peaceful ocean...

Updated: Nov 17, 2021

Imagine rain creating streams, all coming together to form a waterfall cascading off a cliff...


... such is our mind, agitated by our thoughts...


The torrent rushes down the gorge, sometimes calm, sometimes surging...


... such is our spirit oscillating between relaxation and agitation...


Quiet is the river that has become, yet so agitated when heavy rains cause overflows and floods...


... such is our mind when it acquires the beginnings of an inner peace but remains disturbed by an external obstacle...


Calm is the lake in its depths even if it is slightly agitated on the surface...


... such is our mind benefiting from the effects of meditation, hardly agitated by external events...


Unshakable is the ocean as our mind is finally calmed...


... concentrated without effort, whatever happens, spectator and no longer actor of our emotions, it has become as strong as a mountain, undisturbed by the wind of conceptual thoughts....
