Who’s Causing the Ripples?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our life was like a still pond, fully content and thus still and silent on the inside?

However what we find is that pebbles are constantly being thrown into our pond. People throw pebbles and I myself also throw in pebbles. Each one creates ripples in the pond which disrupts the stillness.
Then we try to stop the ripples in whichever way we can. We may even attempt to retrieve the pebble from the pond in an attempt to stop the ripples. In doing so we make the pond prone to even more ripples and  disturbances.

If a pebble is thrown into our pond, for whatever reason, it will cause ripples – understand it, accept it. It is also a fact that if I leave it, step back and just watch the ripples then eventually, in time, the ripples will die away by themselves; they will pass. In trying the control and correct them I make things even more complicated, especially for the self

When pebbles are thrown into the pond of our life in the form of situations that happen, keep it simple and let it take its course. Let it pass, and it will. Hold on and it will stay and grow.

The choice is yours.


Om Shanti
