Peace of mind

Once Buddha was walki= ng from one town to another town with a few of his followers. This was in t= he initial days. While they were travelling, they happened to pass a lake. = They stopped there and Buddha told one of his disciples, I am thirsty. Do g= et me some water from that lake there.

The disciple walked up to the= lake. When he reached it, he noticed that some people were washing clothes= in the water and, right at that moment, a bullock cart started crossing th= rough the lake. As a result, the water became very muddy, very turbid. The = disciple thought, How can I give this muddy water to Buddha to drink! So he= came back and told Buddha, The water in there is very muddy. I don't think= it is fit to drink.

After about half an hour, again Buddha asked th= e same disciple to go back to the lake and get him some water to drink. The disci= ple obediently went back to the lake. This time he found that the lake had = absolutely clear water in it. The mud had settled down and the water above = it looked fit to be had. So he collected some water in a pot and brought it= to Buddha.

Buddha looked at the water, and then he looked up at the= disciple and said, See what you did to make the water clean. You let it be= ... and the mud settled down on its own =E2=80=9C and you got clear water.= .. Your mind is also like that. When it is disturbed, just let it be. Give = it a little time. It will settle down on its own. You don't have to put in = any effort to calm it down. It will happen. It is effortless.

What d= id Buddha emphasize here? He said, It is effortless. Having 'peace of mind'= is not a strenuous job; it is an effortless process. When there is peace i= nside you, that peace permeates to the outside. It spreads around you and in the environment, such that people around start feeling that peace and g= race.
