Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even to the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

“Let the Soul banish all that disturbs;

Let the Body that envelopes it be still,
And all the frettings of the Body,

And all that surrounds it.
Let Earth and Sea and Air be still
And Heaven itself.
And then let the Body think
Of the Spirit as streaming, pouring,
Rushing and shining into it from
All sides while it stands quiet.”

Plotinus, 205

A   really great    EFT  (  emotional freedom  technique)   tapping script.   LOVE this.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_B7TWdx03w

Does  a  lot to   relax   yourself when  you are  worried  about…    anything.  Now, someone  might  say, well,   why do I   need to do the tapping?  Can’t  I  just say   or think these things in my head?      The reason is, if  you  just think these things,   you would  not be affecting   your body.  And the  body,  is where   tensions and stress get   held, and cause all   sorts of  disorder.

Be  sure  to   breathe  deeply as she  does,  and  also   drink some water  after  you are finished.  This will   continue to   move the energy in your  body.

If  you   have  never tried  EFT,  I  encourage  you to try it now. IT is  easy,   just   follow  along and repeat   what she says. I  think   you might be  surprised at    the sense of  peace that arises.  Drop  me a    line  and  let   me know   what  you think  after  you try it.

I  hold the  words broken bones

in my hand; I hold the words

rib cage, the word heart.

I lift every word

like a stone or a feather.

 

The more beautiful words,

like heaven or nothingness,

feel exactly the same

as fencepost or mailbox,

lamplight or shoelace.

 

Spirit

flits like a tongue of flame,

as insubstantial in the  hand

as its  brother, death,

which weighs exactly the same as life.
