Be still my wandering mind
What are you constantly looking to find?
This quest for Knowledge
This quest for Learning
Can it be a blessing
Or is it a curse?
Be still my wandering heart
A lot of things you seek are already with and within you
Though a few things seem really beyond you
Accept what is to be.
Be still my wandering eyes
Stop looking o' er the bend, o'er the hills,
O'er the skies.
Be still my wandering ears
Choose not to listen and magnify your fears.
Still is not stagnation.
It is revelling in the moment.
Contentment does not mean you are unambitious
Contentment does not mean you do not want to grow, learn, experience new things, ideas.
But on the other hand if we have been taught always to chase,
How do we be content?
Is ambition and contentment mutually exclusive or is there a way to balance it?
Or maybe the best thing to do is to ponder on what Buddha says
In the end these things matter the most,
How well did you love?
How fully did you live?
How deeply did you let go?
