Seeking Calm

I am seeking calm.   I need to calm my monkey mind and go with the flow.   Peace.  Serenity.  A place for my soul to rest.  I make stresses that are not there.  I cause myself anxiety when there is no need.  Breathe.  Why are we harder on ourselves than on other people?  If I am kind to others, I should give the same kindness to myself and let myself be.

I sincerely wish you peace of mind soon. Start with live and let live......

Many of us need to learn from scratch to deeply care for ourselves.<br />
<br />
Why? Upbringing I guess. Our parents are our role models.<br />
<br />
I think if we spend 15 minutes per day on a short meditation session, we will feel more focused and far less hassled and overwhelmed. During this session one can imagine the entire next 24 hours and visualise oneself doing it all calmly and properly!<br />

Peace and good health
