“Information is not wisdom. The mind, while a great and irreplaceable tool, can store instead of feel, can sort instead of understand, can, like a beaver builds a dam of everything precious. If you cannot speak when your mouth is stuffed with unchewed wood, how can you think clearly if your mind is stuffed with undigested information? …
But how do we empty the mind? By not overthinking. By not storing and sorting. By not playing fears or dreams or doubts of praise. By choosing the most important thing on our endless list of things to do and doing it fully after tearing up the list.”
~ Mark Nepo from The Book of Awakening
Pause and be still
Find your Middle Ground every day
Allow the mind to clear
Connect to your wisdom.
Remember the beaver
