From Scott Abel:
Peace of mind means tending to a garden that is also of your own creation – and it can be a garden in any figurative sense of the word. But you don’t tend the garden to have the best roses. You tend to the garden to nurture your own soul. …
Unfortunately most people live “mind in pieces” – and therefore can never experience the path of peace of mind. They will always see it as a place to get to. And it will always remain just out of reach.
Wow … “mind in pieces” is a great description for my head in the past (mostly in the throes of binge eating and/or food addiction). Remembering the path of peace of mind helped me get back on track after my recent post-holiday slip-slide. I cultivate it every day!
