The power of a calm mind is much like the reflection of an immense mountain towering over a tranquil lake. You can see the majestic mountain as clearly in the still water as though it were a mirror. Just picturing this image in your head for a moment gives you a split-second of calmness. Imagine the power of the calmness you would be feeling if you were sitting on the edge of that lake.
That split-second is all it takes to shift your focus. Calmness is contagious whether it is a reflection from nature or another person. Next time you find yourself and everything around you spinning out of control take a second and picture this lake. Then watch how everything around you seems to calm down. Be contagious.
