As you look and listen within, what becomes immediately (and shockingly) clear is the degree of chatter that incessantly fills the mind.
It’s mighty busy in there.
As mindfulness deepens, you discover the redundancy of that chatter. It’s amazingly repetitive. Shockingly consistent.
The same inner conflict repeats itself over and over and over and . . . you get the idea.
You don’t have to resolve that inner conflict in order to attain peace of mind . . .
Most attempts at resolution, perpetuate the conflict.
(By most, I mean all.) To free yourself from the cycle of oh-so-familiar conflict . . . let it go.
Stop trying to fix it, solve it, understand it, breakthrough it.
Take a breath.
And gently, gently bring your attention to whatever truly brings a smile to your heart. Don’t think about this too much.
Just let that smile spread from your heart . . . through your whole body and mind.
