Forget External Crisis Work on Internal Crisis

The external crises are innumerable and there is nothing we can do about them. However, we can free ourselves from the crisis we create internally through our own negativity. By improving the quality of thoughts, we can put an end to many crises of our mind.

We spend hours discussing external problems, but rarely do we find time to understand our mind. A mind that is restless and behaving like an uncontrolled horse.

When the mind is tamed, it is peaceful and strong. Then external difficulties remain external. We are not shaken by external situations. We tend to realize truth. It then stays peaceful, free from sorrow and worries.
The only way to tame our mind is by closely observing it. Try to understand how thoughts arise. Get to the source. When we try to search for the source, it will slowly disappear. It is just like opening a seed.
