At Peace with Power – on May 21, 2013
Peace is no more luxury than health.
You’re not the friend to anyone in falling sick.
Nor are you at your best for others when anxiety
— or pain — or irritability —
usurps and rules your moods.
The goal of setting peace upon the throne of mind
and health upon the body is a charity
to all around you.
Your peace is lifeblood which alone can nourish all
the masterpieces over which you labor
to bless your days — and those of all you love.
When you seem blocked within that work
step back — take heed of obstacles —
determine you shall overcome.
Such problems only come
that you may learn
they can be solved!
From forthcoming book:
At Peace with Power: Higher Forms of Stress Management
by Richard Pinneau, Ph.D.
If you will daily sacrifice some few sweet minutes
to feel the pregnant stillness of a lonely solitude,
there will be born in you a Friend
who never tires of sharing strength
or sheltering your frailer parts.
Befriending Peace (who seems at first a lonely hour)
that in return you are befriended
in desert and in crowds.
