Self evaluation

Sometimes in those quiet moments I can really listen to my own thoughts.  The trick is to quiet my mind.

Today this Four of Cups reminds me of the telling of Siddhartha Gautama sitting beneath the bodhi tree.  After years of searching he finally found a quiet space and sat with himself, tuning out all distractions.  The search is within.
