Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose – a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye. ~Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
I often empty my mind in order for it to become full again. It can be a mundane task or a moment of being which grants me an inner peace. From this point the well begins to flow.
The void I often wish to escape is the place I find fulfillment. When I empty my mind, truth rises to the surface, and my soul is filled with peace. When this happens, new worlds open up. My energy soars as my creativity skyrockets. In retrospect, I realize these are moments I choose happiness. These are the moments I allow my passions to lead me. These are the moments I am me.
Letting go of pretensions and expectations, releases the mind of obligations and allows the soul to do its thing. Emptying the mind permits the soul to take its rightful position. This mindlessness helps us become mindful to living.
