When the mind becomes calm,
it naturally becomes more accommodating,
more sensitive to our needs,
and more creative in its support.
Supported by mind’s genius for coordinating and structuring our inner resources,
it is possible for us to take charge of our lives more directly.
Even in times of highly charged emotional distress,
we can calm our minds, restore balance, and open our hearts to joyful feelings.
