Gem of Wisdom for Daily Reflection: 

See the Truth with a Quiet Mind

Buddha Statue

A quiet mind can keep our mind safe from the affective distraction of attachment, aversion and obscuration, and in so doing, eliminate tens of thousands of obstacles from our life.

All sentient beings seek happiness, but what we end up with is inevitably being happy over nothing, excited over nothing; angry over nothing, seeking victory over nothing. In fact everything we come to experience in the world turns out to be just another phenomenon going through its endless transition to nowhere.

When our mind is at peace and remains at its most quiet, there emerges in the rightness of time a stream of pure light from within which enable us to observe the true essence of everything, and thus enable us to let go of all non-essential fixation to embark upon a path of truth leading to a future of lasting happiness.
