Infinite Calm and Exceeding Peace

 

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.

A Soul Ajar

“The soul should always

stand ajar, ready to

welcome the ecstatic

experience.”

– Emily Dickinson –

 

Leave your soul ajar this week. Watch. Listen. Hold on to what enriches you.

Nourish peace,

cultivate loving kindness,

and carry the calm.
