Would you like to be at peace? Pause then to gather your mind and your heart.
Usually, mind is all over the place: pondering the past, anticipating the future, or gripped by a crippling emotion born from desire, aversion, or confusion. The gamut runs from self-recrimination and fear to competitiveness, anger and greed.
Take a moment to pause and gather your scattered mind from everywhere it’s gone – from yesterday, tomorrow, your to-do list, a problematic encounter, worries about work, the French Riviera or whatever pulls on you. Bring your mind back home into your self.
