Stillness & Harmony

2.65 …for when the heart has found quietness, wisdom has also found peace.

2.66 There is no wisdom for a man without harmony, and without harmony there is no contemplation. Without contemplation there cannot be peace, and without peace can there be joy? The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 2)


In the stillness that resides deep inside us can be discovered a peace, even a wisdom that is profoundly therapeutic. The search for this well of quietness is one goal worth pursuing, according to God in The Gita.

harmony –> peace –> joy

What brings harmony into our life? Once the mind enjoys harmony, deeper thinking becomes possible, the mind is now under our greater control. Once thoughts are more directed, the inherent peace seeks an outlet. Joy emerges from that peace.

Daily Affirmation: Today I discover joy by controlling my mind.
