Slow down the mind

I know of someone who says that agitation in the mind, of any kind, interferes with our ability to love, and to grow.

When the mind does not flicker, there can be no fear. When the mind does not flicker, there can be no anger. All negative emotions are wild movements in the mind that vanish when the mind is still.
