Just, Let it be!!

One day, Buddha was walking from one town to another with a few of his followers. While they were traveling, they happened to pass by a lake. They stopped to rest there and Buddha asked one of his disciples to get him some water from the lake. A disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed some people were washing clothes in the water and, right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing through the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy. The disciple thought, ““How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink!”” So he came back and told Buddha, “”The water in the lake is very muddy. I don’’t think it is suitable to drink.”” After a while, Buddha again asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water. The disciple obediently went back to the lake. This time he found that the mud had settled down and the water was clean so he collected some in a pot and brought it to Buddha.
Buddha looked at the water then looked up at the disciple and said, ““See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be and the mud settled down on its own.
It is also the same with your mind. When it is disturbed, just let it be.
Give it a little time and it will settle down on its own.

  2. I love this story as it is so easy to get caught up with our monkey brains. Waiting for the monkey to go to sleep allows our thoughts to be clear without all of the nonsense.

    Those are good words to live by. It would be nice if all the people that take offense to trivial statements and things they find on social media would heed those words. There would be a lot less anxiety ridden people in the world.
