Deep in the soul, below pain,
below all the distraction of life,
is a silence vast and grand –
an infinite ocean of calm,
which nothing can disturb;
nature’s own exceeding peace…
– R.M. Bucke –
Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

“The soul should always
stand ajar, ready to
welcome the ecstatic
– Emily Dickinson –
Leave your soul ajar this week. Watch. Listen. Hold on to what enriches you.
cultivate loving kindness,
and carry the calm.
