Plant the Seed of a Peaceful Mind
The seeds planted in this moment are the flowers of our future. Be
mindful of your thoughts and emotions. They are the seeds that blossom
an bear fruit according to their nature. If we yearn for peace, we must
cultivate it first in our own consciousness.
~Yogacharya Ellen Grace O'Brian
A steady meditation practice makes us aware of the stream of thoughts within our minds. We can choose to energize those that are useful and let those that accentuate disappointment and anger fall away. We cannot control external events but our meditation practice gives us the tools to control how we react to them. Choose peacefulness and harmony today and we will encounter them as we move forward.
