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.
