Have you ever stood under a waterfall?
At first, all you hear would just be buzzing1
But if you stay there for a little while, you would find that the noise disappeared.
It's not that the whole world just fell into silence.
It's just that you have merged2
into the world around you.
Your heart found its peace.
You still hear the sound. But you now feel it with your body and your mind, not your ears.
This is what being calm is all about.
Most of times we focus too much on the physical sensation3
and we get trapped by it.
But we are humans. We are superior4
than other animals because we can think.
So the next time you find yourself not able to accomplish something because your mind feels so messed up, maybe you should take a breath and think if you have tried hard enough.
Is that really your mind's limit?
Or you just give in to what your body is feeling?
