No wind, waves, ripples

Perfect reflection on pond

Mind like still water.

Art Prescription: Misu no kokoro translates in Japanese to “A mind like still water.” It refers to water taking on a mirror-like quality. Working with horses is like this.

From Mark Rashid’s book “Whole Heart, Whole Horse: Building trust between horse and rider:”

“Put simply, developing a quiet mind allows us to take in and process information in a true and correct manner and then respond appropriately, in a way suited to the situation, provided the situation even needs a response.”

It occurs to me that this applies to every relationship in our lives.
