There is no beautifier of complexion, or form, or behavior, like the wish to scatter joy and not pain around us.

Return to peace

It’s natural to feel anger, but you don’t have to let it consume your precious time. Choose to quickly return to peace.

Feeling anxiety can at times be appropriate and useful, but you don’t want to be overwhelmed by it. Make it your intention to quickly return to peace.

Living with a peaceful perspective does not mean withdrawing from the realities of life. It’s a matter of experiencing and working through those realities with intention, confidence, and purpose.

Much of what happens in your world is beyond your ability to influence. Yet you do have significant control over your thoughts, your perspective, your attitude, and that control gives you much to work with.

Whatever the outer situation, you can live with the power of peace on the inside. Though it won’t magically make everything better, it will help you to be more positive and effective in your words, your actions, your outcomes.

Make it your intention to quickly return to peace. And let its beneficial power be a part of whatever you do.

— Ralph Marston
