Calmness and time given to disturbed mind can work wonders

Often when things do not work according to our will and wish, we tend to get disturbed. Disturbed mind results in irritation and frustration. It does not make sense to think when you are disturbed. As we tend to think negatively at that point of time when we are disturbed. Have you faced such situations?

In order to have a control over disturbed mind, we have to learn the tactics of being calm. Leave the situation for some time. Re-visit when you can think deeply and clearly about the situation. This tactic not only will help in positive results but also will keep you away from many diseases that pressured mind can give you. Below is the small story to pass on this message to you. Read and let me know how you like it.

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."
