when our minds are filled with thoughts
it is like a pond filled with waves
the more waves fill the pond
the more difficult it is for the pond to be clear

thoughts cloud the mind as waves cloud water
they distract us from the awareness of the present moment
and cause us to confusedly go through life
never feeling our immediate connection to everything else

when we notice thoughts coming into our minds
it is a mistake to become emotional towards those thoughts
the emotions will bring about more thoughts
further clouding the mind they leave one oblivious to the present

the best manner in which to deal with this
is to allow the thoughts to subside without agitating the mind
if we take pause and allow the serene state to return
then we can return to the wisdom that arises with awareness
