The Ripple

A man was sitting by a lake. He was throwing small pebbles into it from time
to time. A young boy happened to cross by. He was intrigued to see that
after every few minutes or so, the man would toss a pebble into the lake.

The boy went up to the man and said, "Good pastime, this stone throwing,
he?" "Hmmm," said the man. He seemed to be deep in thought and obviously did
not wish to be 

Sometime later, the man said softly, "Look at the water, it is absolutely
still." <http://funlok.com/index.php/story/the-ripple-04012010.html>

once a pebble has been thrown into it. But if we can stop ourselves from
throwing the pebble in the first place, the ripples can be avoided
altogether! So too, it is with our minds. If a thought enters into it, it
creates ripples. The only way to save the mind from getting disturbed is to
block and ban the entry of every superfluous thought that could be a
potential cause for disturbance. If a disturbance has entered into the mind,
it will take its own time to die down. Too many conflicting thoughts just
cause more and more disturbances. Once the disturbance has been caused it
takes time to ebb out. Even trying to forcibly remove the thought may
further increase the turmoil in the mind. Time surely is a great healer, but

it through the triple filter test of authenticity, goodness and
