Nine noisy breaktimes! Noise can be loving, joyful, helpful or it can simply be too much at times.
What exactly is a noisy, busy state of mind?
Would it surprise you to know that you determine the level of your busyness and noise?
As Aaron Turner (One Thought) says
"Let’s break down the nuts and bolts of that insecure feeling" – whatever its label (busy, noisy, worry, lack, pressure, scared, grumpy etcetera).
It is merely the sum of the clutter or debris you are thinking of right now.
Regaining ease and peace
An uncluttered peaceful mind is our natural state. It is the absence of insecure thinking (or distraction away from it).
Knowing you have the potential for ease and peace at any time you wish, really dampens down the tired grumpy pressurised feelings teaching and other caring professions seem to experience.
But for your thinking – there’s nothing really in the way of feeling at ease, it is not the best kept secret that we all do too much thinking, and it makes sense not to add to this by analysing or trying to solve the cause.
