A few points…
All is subject to arising and ceasing—the Four Noble Truths
Visualization: see myself as the still water of a pristine lake that is in the forest.
See myself as still water. Be the still water. Still the body, quiet the mind.
In the state of calm and stillness…I then reflect things as they are.
I do not distort things as I observe them.
When I am NOT calm, I distort things and I cannot receive things as they are or see the truth of situations, or experience truth from other beings.
Remember I am the still lake—(a calm mind)…
If calm, I will “reflect truth.”
If the lake is choppy, then I won’t reflect the truth. I will perceive in distorted ways.
If I’m still, then my perception will be correct.
Then I will understand what people reflect to me.
I will receive the truth from them and the cosmos or the Universe.
So practice meditation. Sit quietly. Breathe…
Be still and let life happen.
See that the earth rests in the yearly cycle…about 4 months…
similar to the human being that rests about 8 hours/day or 1/3 of its life.
This cycle is essential for lasting well being and life.
Though simple living comes control of desires and calmness and stillness is restored.
Body still. Mind quiet.
When mind is at peace, then the mind is still.
