Reflections in a river

Reflections in a river – by Philip Dodson

The sky clears
Lights twinkle in the city
The traffic creeps by
The people rush to
Who knows where

The people don’t notice
Stuck in their heads
Thinking about their world
What’s happening outside

They do not notice
Not seeing the passing river
Not noticing that it’s all
Just reflections in a river

The body is a reflection of the mind

When we feel something inside us, a disturbance, when we feel something in our bodies that isn’t right, do not look for something physical, look to the mind.

Our emotions and physical state is a reflection of the state of our mind.

When we are at peace and detached from thought, then there is a physical calmness within the body. The opposite is true when the mind is active.

Often, we say ‘I’m OK’, then if we check our body, then we sense all the emotions, turbulence, then we can know that the deep subconscious activity of our deepest thoughts and negative repeating patterns of thought is there and causing disturbance.

The body is a reflection of the mind. If we are mentally silent and at peace within, then the body will reflect that.
