Just the simple daily task of quiet thinking, finding a restful place in the mind, helps us in so many ways. I love the Buddhist story of the young Buddhist traveller trying to find his way across a mighty river. He shouts over to a great teacher “how do I get to the other side of this mighty river ?“. The teacher ponders the question, looks up and down the river, and shouts back “You are on the other side.”
Today’s painting is inspired by artist Brigitte Cotanceau, and it’s inspired by the value of quiet thoughtful moments.
