Your Mind is Like the Ocean

The ocean does not become calm and still. That is not the nature of ocean. But now we have become so familiar with the full expanse of the ocean that even the biggest waves no longer bother us. This is how we can experience our thoughts and emotions — even those we have spent our lives trying to be free of. Every movement of the mind, and every emotional reaction, is still just a small wave on the vast surface of the awakened mind.
