PEACE OF MIND - short story

A farmer lost his watch in the barn. After searching for a long while, he enlisted the help of a group of children playing outside the barn. He promised the finder would be rewarded. Hearing this, the children hurriedly started an ultimate search. They found no watch.

Just when the farmer was about to give up the search, a little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance. The farmer looked at him and thought, “Why not?” After a while the little boy came out with the watch in his hand!
The farmer was both happy and surprised; he asked the boy how he succeeded. The boy replied, “I did nothing but sat on the ground and listened. In the silence, I heard the ticking of the watch and just looked for it in that direction.”
A peaceful mind can think better than a worked up mind. Sometimes the noise in our life is so much with no clarity on what to do. The mind seems so occupied with lots of thoughts that promote fear, discouragement & anxiety. Let peace guard your heart all the time. Consciously clear your head and mind; be patient and listen.

If you want peace, stop fighting. If you want peace of mind, stop fighting with your thoughts - Peter McWilliams. Don't let other people hold the key to your peace of mind. Why worry? Make peace of mind your priority.
