HMMM i don't have an answer for you, but maybe your answer is in silence... in this world many things try to keep your mind rolling one way or another continuously reacting to some stimuli... in that state it is easy to be on an auto pilot, an automaton, a creature on reaction after reaction after reaction... that state is not conductive to change. For change you need deiced action not just reactions... if your current living pattern is a string of reactions you don't really decide on anything, your on automatic mode... to stir your potential you require the temple of silence, of stillness, which creates space giving a pause, a breaking of your instant reactions so you can then decide rather then just react... and what a powerful change that can be.
this is a reminder to me and anyone else that it may benefit, to be present and set our intentions from an expansive place for it can be easy to get caught in the flow of our self automation...
when you notice the world seems to be going by pause... in that stillness, that silent presence is your blank canvas where you can do anything, there lies the knowledge of the infinite potential/possibilities for you have all so many choices
Peace and love
