Calmness of Mind
CALMNESS OF MIND
Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self control. The presence of calmness is an indication of ripened experience. The calm person having learnt how to govern himself, knows how to adopt himself with others, and they in turn revere his inner strength and feel that they can learn from him and can rely upon him. A tranquil man becomes greater in his life. An ordinary trader will find his business prosperous as soon as he starts developing calmness within him. The calm man is always loved and revered. He is like a shadow providing tree in a desert. He who cannot remain calm while facing ups and downs cannot think properly and his life energy starts getting wasted. Always remember, rash actions breed rash results. Calmness can neither be bought nor be taught. You can easily get it by practice. For a better life it is good to start practicing calmness and cool headedness. Cool headedness is a way of life. It is a method of keeping your mind and body relaxed even at the time when you are not realising. The heat of mind makes hot not only the mind but also the body starts losing its coolness. So the thing you need to do is to inculcate coolness into your life and to do so you should identify your problem. You have to observe yourself. Consider yourself as busy made up of two water tanks called mind and body. There is an inlet and outlet to each one of these. Both water tanks are required to have water in them to keep you alive. The more you read and learn the more will the mind water tank get filled. The more you get mentally anxious and excited the more will the mind water tank start losing its water. Similarly the more you do exercise and take healthy food, the more will the body water tank get filled. The more you use it physically for no purpose, the more will the body water tank start losing its water. In nutshell, if a person is unable to keep calm and cool, he is unable to take wise decisions at the time when he is crowded by the devils of problems and bad phase of life.
