Daily Oracle Card ~ QUIETING THE MIND
Key concepts: meditation as a commitment, the need for silence, peace within despite chaotic outer conditions, letting go of the monkey mind, mindfulness
Life is chaotic, busy, loud, frenetic, and overwhelming. Some days all that noise is like the roar of thunder, echoing around you, and it feels as if you’re being pummeled by a rainstorm. Isn’t this why we take vacations—to get away to somewhere peaceful?
In spite of the surrounding din of the world, today you need to slow down and find a bit of peace. So go ahead and take a deep breath right now. Make a commitment to be still, if only for five minutes. Count your breaths, and be mindful of every one of them. Know that you have all the time in the world to do the things that need doing. Everything is perfect as it is.
Our core beliefs about the world originate in our thoughts and feelings, which then become our perceptions. If our thoughts are all over the place, that is how we will experience the outer world. But what if the outer world didn’t matter at all? What if at our center, there were a place that is always calm, where the mind doesn’t have a million things to say, where problems and challenges aren’t nearly as important as we think they are?
Today requires you to take an internal break and go to that silent space to regroup. Meditate on the stillness within; choose a peaceful mind and nothing else. You will be amazed by how easily everything falls into place once you do. Oracles of the 7 Energies
