Do Less

“Do Less”

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.


True Love

True Love

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.

Helen Steiner Rice



Open your heart to happiness

Let every pore absorb light

Swim in the joy of the here and now

And cast off the darkness of night

Walk in the summer of sunshine

Fly in the blueness of sky

Know possibilities are boundless

Understand that nothing can die

Step from the shadows of torment

Sing ’til your throat gets too sore

Smile for as long as the day is

And laugh just a little bit more

Breathe slowly and deeply and listen

Give all your ideas a chance

Let the sun beat down on your goodness

And kick off your shoes and dance

Paul Hayward
