It is difficult to think or act with clarity when we’re feeling overwhelmed, spun up, or uncertain. Try imagining yourself as a lake, shimmering in the sunlight, held by the earth. Noticing whatever ripples and waves are present, and inviting them to fade off into the distance. Give it time, allowing the warmth of the sun to shine through, clearing the murky depths and revealing your translucence.
In mindful presence,
Muddy water is best cleared by leaving it alone.
