Having ‘Peace of Mind’ is an effortless process!-

 Once Buddha was walking from one town to another town with a few of  his followers. This was in the initial days. While they were  traveling, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and Buddha  told one of his disciples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from  that lake there.”
 
 The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed  that right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the  lake. As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The  disciple thought, “How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to  drink!”
 
 So he came back and told Buddha, “The water in there is very muddy. I  don’t think it is fit to drink.” After about half an hour, again  Buddha asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some  water to drink. The disciple obediently went back to the lake.
 
 This time too he found that the lake was muddy. He returned and  informed Buddha about the same. After sometime, again Buddha asked the  same disciple to go back.
 
 The disciple reached the lake to find the lake absolutely clean and  clear with pure water in it. The mud had settled down and the water  above it looked fit to be had. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to Buddha.
 
 Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the disciple and  said,” See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be…. and  the mud settled down on its own – and you got clear water.

 Your mind is also like that!
When it is disturbed, just let it be.  Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have  to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is  effortless.”

 
What did Buddha emphasize here? He said, “It is effortless.” Having ‘Peace of Mind’ is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process!
 
 In life everything goes on………. ……Keep Going.
 Have a peaceful Life!
 
 KEEP SMILING…… …….
 ………… ….not because of something, but inspite of everything

Feelings- E mail by Akbarali Narasi

 
A wife was making fried eggs for her husband for breakfast. Suddenly her
husband burst into the kitchen.
 
“Careful… Careful!!! Put in some more butter! Oh my God! You’re cooking
too many at once. Too many! Turn them! Turn them now! We need more butter.
Oh my God! Where are we going to get more butter? They’re going to stick!
Careful… Careful!!! I said be careful! You never listen to me when you’re
cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you crazy? Have you lost your
mind? Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them.
Use the salt. Use the salt! The salt!”
 
 
The wife stared at him and asked, “What the heck is wrong with you? You
think I don’t know how to fry a couple of eggs?”
 
The husband calmly replied, “I wanted to show you what it feels like when
I’m driving with you in the car.”
