"Ash looked so surprised," Holly said. "He had no idea what was going on. He said, 'I didn't sleep with our personal trainer! We don't even have a personal trainer!'"

“Meditation quarantines distractions.”
Khang Kijarro Nguyen

“According to one Harvard study, we spend nearly 50 percent of our waking time thinking about something other than what we're really supposed to be doing. And perhaps that's the main reason the universe is not helping you in achieving what you want because you yourself are not clear & based on your deliriums, wildness & inattentions it is simply not clear what you want. How the hell anyone for that matter would come to know what you want unless you consistently, relentlessly work towards it. Let you remind yourself that your reality exists only in your mind & nowhere else. It is you who tell to universe what is important to you, what you believe, what you fear & what you are focused on. If you are focused, committed, hopeful & positive, you are presented with more relevant solutions instead of problems, more good news instead of bad news & more good people instead of negative people. Otherwise your ambiguousness will surely hold you from reaching the next levels of fulfillment, happiness & success. Let you soon create habits, lifestyle, practices that signal to yourself, your world & obviously to universe that you are in distraction-free mode & allow the universe to respond to your momentum with more & bless you far more abundantly than all you want & deserve. Stay Focused, Wholehearted & Work Hard!”
Rajesh Goyal

“We should not be distracted by anything; neither by dreams, whether evil or seemingly good, nor by the thought of anything, whether good or bad, nor by distress or deceitful joy, nor by self-conceit or despair, nor by depression or elation, nor by a sense of abandonment or by illusory help and strength, nor by negligence or progress, nor by laziness or seeming zeal, nor by apparent dispassion or passionate attachment. Rather with humility we should strive to maintain a state of stillness, free from all distraction, knowing that no one can do us harm unless we ourselves wish for it.”
Peter Of Damascus, A Treasury of Divine Knowledge
