The Quiet Mind

"Give us


and strength

to forbear

and to


Give us


and gaiety

and the quiet mind,

spare to us our friends,

soften to us our enemies." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Noise is created in our minds when we have shame and

regret for yesterday, we worry about tomorrow and

we fear today.

For yesterday, we clear the wreckage of the past, we make

amends and we do not repeat those habits and addictive

behaviors that made such loud noises.

Worrying about tomorrow is listening for the noise

which will never be heard.

Fear not for today, have the courage to live life on God's

terms and learn to quietly listen for the will of your

loving Higher Power.

Today, know that the noisy gossip of yesterday,

the loud complaints of tomorrows possibilities,

and the constant harping on todays fears

will leave us with no friends.

Today, know that noise is the ammunition of the enemy.

Live in today, one day at a time, with the faith that

God will speak to us within the silence of the quiet mind.

Happiness is living in today with a quiet mind.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

ME and the Boss
