Give Us This Day A Little Serenity

Everybody could benefit greatly from a little serenity now and then and lucky are those who have been able to cut through all the noise of our daily lives to find some.

We live in chaos and frenzy — rushing to and fro ….always looking for something to do; somewhere to go! Some people fear they might suddenly die if they were relaxed for a moment of time. Yet, unbeknownst to many, serenity is healing and reinvigorating!

Where is that quiet, undisturbed place where we can all go to find a little peace? Not in the TV room, that’s for sure! Not in the motion picture palace, that’s for sure! Not at a cocktail party, Not in the major metropolitan library with all the dope dealers working their trade in the public bathrooms. How about in a public park with all the clamoring children, screaming and yelling? Nah!

It is very difficult to find a place to be alone with your thoughts in this modern age.

How about if we do nothing more than turn off all our electronic devices for about an hour each day?

One of the rising illnesses of our hectic age is that some people feel overly-anxious if they find a little peace in their lives. They are so addicted to hyperactivity they don’t know what to do with themselves if things suddenly go quiet.

What is YOUR remedy for all this?

  1. My remedy is simple. Walking in the countryside with Ollie. Sit for a while on a fallen tree and listen to the birds calling, and the sound of the water moving along the river. Works every time, every day.
    Best wishes, Pete.
