An Empty Mind

An Empty Mind_smaller

Some of us may have been through a stage whereby a bad thing happens, it will come to you one after another. How do you deal with your problems? Can you overcome them? Some of us will choose to escape from their problems, some will keep their problems to themselves while others will try to find alternative solutions to their problems. However, there are times when you can’t find any solution to your problem, what will you do then? Even if you choose to keep thinking about it, nothing is actually getting done.

October was not a very smooth month for me. Everyone is going through their hard times. Just when my mind was filled with negative thoughts, there will be words of wisdom which set me to think straight. My uncle once said: “Whatever you do, face it with your heart and good things will naturally come to you.” At that point of time, I could only agree with him but I didn’t really understand what he meant. Now, I truly experience it, the feeling of doing things with my heart, things will then slowly fall into place. Sometimes, you just have to try to empty your mind and you will be able to see things from a different light. Who knows, you may come across random articles or conversations which will help in leading your thoughts to the right direction.

“Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup, you put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle, you put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” – Bruce Lee

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” – Confucius
