PEACE OF MIND

One day a wise King was walking from one town to another town with a few of his followers. This was in the initial days. While they were travelling, they happened to pass a lake. They stopped there and the King told one of his disci-ples, “I am thirsty. Do get me some water from that lake there”.”

The disciple walked up to the lake. When he reached it, he noticed that 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 and cloudy The disciple thought to himself, “How can I give this muddy water to my master to drink?”” So he came back and told the King, “The water in there is very muddy. I don’t think it is fit to drink”.”

After about half an hour, again the King asked the same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disciple obediently went back to the lake. This time he found that the lake had absolutely clear water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above it looked fit to be had. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it to his master.

The King looked at the water, and then he 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 and you got clear water… Your mind is also like that. When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don’t have to put in any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless”.”

What did the King emphasize here? He said, “It is effortless”. Having ‘peace of mind’ is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process. When there is peace inside you, that peace permeates to the outside. It spreads around you and in the environment, such that people around start feeling that peace and grace.

The woman opens the trunk, revealing nothing but an empty trunk.

Officer 2

: Is this your car, ma’am?

Older Woman

: Yes, here are the registration papers.
The officer is quite stunned.

Officer 2

: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving license.

The woman digs into her handbag and pulls out a clutch purse and hands it to the officer.

The officer examines the license. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer 2

: Thank you ma’am, one of my officers told me you didn’t have a license, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.

Older Woman

: Bet the liar told you I was speeding, too.
