You’ve got to make the effort to still the mind

You’ve got to make the effort to still the mind

“There’s a lot going on in our world -there’s the dishwasher going and the disposal going and the traffic and the airplanes– and it’s hard. We learn to tune out or we’d go nuts, so we learn to close ourselves down, and we don’t hear the noise and we stay sane, but we also don’t hear the things that might make us whole. We don’t hear the wind blowing, the bird singing, the baby crying. So, you’ve got to make the effort to still the mind.”

Marilyn McGuire, The life of Meaning P.168
