“People say, ‘Quiet the mind and the soul shall speak.’ It should really be, ‘Quiet the mind and everything will start yelling at you.’ If the idea of slowing down and ‘shutting off your mind’ sounds scary to you, don’t let it be scary. Meditation is actually focusing all your mental power on only one thing, and you get to choose what that thing is.” – Kelly Smith
