Most of us have times when our mind is turbulent, jumping from one thought to another, making us anxious, angry, or fearful. Maybe we’ve enjoyed a peaceful meditation or a postures experience and our mind becomes calm. Suddenly we recall something that happened a day ago, a week ago, or even ten years ago. And boom, off we go into a turmoil of old thoughts and feelings.
Find out how to get a clear, calm mind and stay in that peaceful state no matter what thoughts or feelings bubble up.
The restless mind is looking for a place to rest. It’s pulled by the outer world and also attracted by the flashes of light and bliss within. If the mind goes within to its source, yogis say all will be gained — the inner universe and the outer world.
This is part four of a six-part series on You Can Choose Your State of Mind. A person who is in the restless state of mind is at a pivot point, sometimes experiencing inner harmony but sometimes preoccupied by chaotic thoughts and feelings. If you are in this state, you are occasionally aware of your inner self, but generally not. Find out how you can move beyond the restless state to a clear, calm mind which is attuned with your inner self.
We ask you to commit two hours a week to selfless service. This service can be anything you choose ranging from helping a family member or neighbor to volunteering at a nonprofit organization.
This commitment is solely between you and your inner self.
