There once was a farmer who discovered that he had lost his watch in the barn. It was no ordinary watch because it had sentimental value for him.
After searching high among the straw for a long while he gave up. He saw near the barn were the group of children playing. He called up them.
He promised them that the person who found it would be rewarded.
Hearing this, the children hurried inside the barn went through and searching the entire stack of straw but still could not find the watch.
After long time of searching for the watch the farmer was about to give up looking for his watch. A little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance. The farmer looked at him and thought,
Why not? After all, this kid looks sincere enough.
So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand! The farmer was both happy and surprised and so he asked the boy how you succeeded where the rest had failed.
The boy replied, I did nothing but sit on the ground and listen. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.
Moral: A peaceful mind can think better than a worked up mind. Allow a few minutes of silence to your mind every day. and see, how sharp it helps you to set your life the way you expect it to be!
The Soul always knows what to do to heal itself. The challenge is to silence the mind.
