May – Inner Peace, Unimpeded Practice
When your heart is at ease, your wisdom is awakened. Normally, we tend to focus on the outer world, its distractions occupy our minds and prevents us from self-contemplation. Take time to settle down, gathering your thoughts and emotions. Recognise that impermanence is a normality, and at the end of the day, everything will be alright.
 
■ Head of Guanyin Bodhisattva China | Sui dynasty #7@101
This Guanyin Bodhisattva from Sui dynasty has a realistic quality, with delicate, wavy eye slits and a calm countenance.
Calmness can come from seated meditation. Since the ancient times, meditation is a daily habit. Garner your thoughts and emotions. Allow your heart to settle down and feel more at ease.
