A Still Mind

Take all thoughts from your head,
Throw them out and give a shout,
Empty the head and empty the mind,
Give those fears a killing time.

Free the mind, and lose some weight,
With a lighter head you shall state,
The mind is still, and it feels all fine,
With an empty mind you’ll be alright.

A still mind, is more alive,
A still mind, helps you thrive,
A still mind, will kill your fears,
A still mind, you’ll think very clear.

Break the Wall

Let me tell you a short story. In a company, one fine Monday morning, the CEO put up a notice saying “Yesterday the person hindering your growth has passed away. Please gather in the conference room at 10:00 a.m. to pray for his soul.” All the employees were curious to find out who this person was, who was hindering their growth.

Though many were making sad faces as someone had gone away, in their minds they were happy that now they would be able to progress and grow in life. At 10:00 a.m. all employees gathered in the conference room and curiously went ahead to the coffin to see this person, Only to be shocked to find a mirror kept in the coffin. They all realized by just a positive thought, that now they will be able to progress in life. This made them feel good and gave them a positive approach to work and life, as they believed someone else was hindering their growth.

It made them understand that it was their own fears that had created walls of in their minds and hindered their growth. A positive thought momentary broke all the walls of fear in their minds. That is all it takes, a positive thought, to move ahead and not let anything hinder our growth and path of success to life.
