The Peace of Wild Things. Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
to care for my physical, spiritual, emotional and mental health.
Random acts of kindness
Just Go- ( I go running)
Do 5 ( of anything for strength)
Just do today-(how I handle stress)
Work from the Outside in and the inside out.

(The Sabbath Poems, 1993, I)
No, no, there is no going back.
Less and less you are
that possibility you were.
More and more you have become
those lives and deaths
that have belonged to you.
You have become a sort of grave
containing much that was
and is no more in time, beloved
then, now, and always.
And so you have become a sort of tree
standing over the grave.
Now more than ever you can be
generous toward each day
that comes, young, to disappear
forever, and yet remain
unaging in the mind.
Every day you have less reason
not to give yourself away.

"When you are in alignement with who you really are, you cannot help but uplift those with whom you come into contact. Your value to those around you hinges upon only one thing: your personal alignment with source. And the only thing you have to give to another is an example of that alignment, which they may observe, then desire, and then work to achieve." via Runi my yoga teacher
