"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Saturday Meditations

"The epitome of the human realm is to be stuck in a huge traffic jam of discursive thought". Chogyam Trungpa

This means that the our reality feels like it is stuck in a huge traffic jam - passing aimlessly from one subject to another - rambling.

Do you want to take a risk and make a change just for ten minutes?

Then be silent. Feel the peace and freedom.

There is a quiet place behind the noise of thinking. It's there for us whenever we want it.

The first step is becoming aware of the traffic jam and admitting it is there - then to stop it with some silence - and feel the peace and freedom you experience.

Maybe then our minds will become clearer. (And then, maybe they won't - Lol)
