Distracted by Your Distractions

When you’re distracted from our inner place of quietness it’s because the mind is busy, but if you’re not careful even when you have idle time you can be just as distracted from your inner place of quietness…

Its not like a quiet mind is something that happens without practice. At times it’s naturally more quiet than others, but quietness is not always the norm. Sometimes I have to stop what I am doing and go sit, it’s almost as if a reset button for my mind is needed.

It’s the place of your own inner truth because this is the truth that arises from quietness. This is the message that’s conveyed to others, but it will only be seen if you’re not distracted by the distractions that distract you…
