    A worthy list, Pretti. I know the feeling … indeed we all need to be reminded that we ave the power to cross the shore of noise and chaos to peace and calm any time we choose. No matter how frantic life gets we always have the inexorable right to take command of our mind.

  2. Dawn says:

    That’s a great list. You can feel the tension dissolve as you read it.

    Interesting to see how many of them were about letting go of the past and future and simply concentrating on today. There is wisdom in that.

    What a wonderful verse about peace at the top of the page!
    All other quotes are precious. But I like most “Honor the past,
    Live in the present, Create the future.” This is more close to the reality of life.
    Good Post, ZenGirl.

    Preeti, I love this collection of quotes.
    “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, it empties today of its strength.” It’s amazing how easy it is to worry and yet there’s such little benefit to it.

    The poem you have at the top of the post is brilliant. I hadn’t heard it before. Thank you for sharing it
