Mind Over Matter


Sure, I hope everyone shops at The Golden Braid for books and gifts that really speak to us and those we care about the most. But you really don’t have to spend a dime on the one thing that you truly want and desire for yourself.

I think if you really get quiet for a while (for some a long while) with a clear mind and no ego you will come to the conclusion that what most of us really want is peace of mind. Certainly there is no item and no amount of money that will afford us the opportunity to be at peace- to be happy. In fact, if you haven’t noticed, those of us with too many possessions and full focus on the cash rarely have the peace and happiness we desire.
