Calmness & Patience ✨✨

I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.

— Dalai Lama

CALMNESS of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.

It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control.

Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and a more than ordinary awareness of the laws and operations of thought.

A man becomes calm in the measure that he appreciates himself as a thought evolved being, for such knowledge necessitate the knowledge of others as the result of thought, and as he develops a right understanding, and sees more and more clearly the internal relations of things by the action of cause and effect he ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains poised, responsible, serene.

The calm man, having learned how to govern himself, knows how to adapt himself to others; and they, in turn, reverence his spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of him and rely upon him.

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his achievement, his influence, his power for good.

Even the ordinary dealer will find his business prosperity increase as he develops greater self-control and equanimity, for people will always prefer to deal with a man whose demeanor is strongly equable.

The strong, calm man is always loved and revered.

He is like a shade-giving tree in a thirsty land or a sheltering rock in a storm.

“Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet tempered, balanced life?

It does not matter whether it rains or shines, or what changes come to those possessing these blessings, for they are always sweet, serene, and calm.

That elegant poise of character, which we call serenity is the last lesson of culture, the fruitage of the soul.

It is precious as wisdom, more to be desired than gold—yea, than even fine gold.

How insignificant mere money-seeking looks in comparison with a serene life

A life that dwells in the ocean of Truth, beneath the waves, beyond the reach of tempests, in the Eternal Calm!

“How many people we know who sour their lives, who ruin all that is sweet and beautiful by explosive tempers, who destroy their poise of character, and make bad blood!

It is a question of whether the great majority of people do not ruin their lives and mar their happiness by lack of self-control.

How few people we meet in life who are well balanced, who have that exquisite poise which is characteristic of the finished character!

Yes, humanity surges with uncontrolled passion, is turbulent with ungoverned grief, is blown about by anxiety and doubt only the wise man, only he whose thoughts are controlled and purified, makes the winds and the storms of the soul obey him.

Yepmpest-tossed souls, wherever ye may be, under whatsoever conditions ye may live, know this in the ocean of life the isles of Blessedness are smiling, and the sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming.

Keep your hand firmly upon the helm of thought. In the bark of your soul reclines the commanding Master; He does but sleeps: wake Him.

Self-control is strength; Right Thought is mastery; Calmness is power. Say unto your heart, “Peace, be still!”

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
