Wise words for when we are caught up in doing more…
Do less thinking,
And pay more attention to your heart
Do less acquiring,
And pay more attention to what you already have
Do less complaining,
And pay more attention to giving
Do less controlling,
And pay more attention to letting go
Do less criticizing,
And pay more attention to complimenting
Do less arguing,
And pay more attention to forgiveness
Do less running around,
And pay more attention to stillness
Do less talking,
And pay more attention to silence.
The Mystery Of Pain
Pain has an element of blank,
It cannot recollect
When it began, or if there were
A day when it was not.
It has no future but itself,
Its infinite realms contain
Its past, enlightened to perceive
New periods of pain.
True love is sacred flame
That burns eternally,
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny.
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear,
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds,
And true love holds with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines.
