As the year is ending, we would like to say thank you for your friendship, support, and sharing all through this year (as in years before, and hopefully through more years to come) and to send you our best wishes for the coming year.
Although Saskia Davis wrote Symptoms of Inner Peace
back in 1984, we have just come across it and would like to share it with you as something to inspire you for the new year:
SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE
by Saskia Davis
A tendency to think and act
spontaneously rather than on fears
based on past experiences
An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment
A loss of interest in judging other people
A loss of interest in judging self
A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others
A loss of interest in conflict
A loss of ability to worry
Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation
Contented feelings of connectedness with others & nature
Frequent attacks of smiling
An increasing tendency to let things happen
rather than make them happen.
An increased susceptibility to love extended by others
and the uncontrollable urge to extend it.
Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of a great many already have been exposed and it is possible that people, everywhere, could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what, up to now, has been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.
If you have some or all of the above symptoms, be advised that your condition of inner peace may be too far advanced to be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk. © 1984
As Saskia said, "I hope you catch it!"
Wishing you a new year full of joy and inner peace,
Dusit and Usa Duongsaa
