What do you do to keep calm?
Do you think it's ok to lose your marbles?
Are we really a sea of tranquility beneath it ALL?
What does it mean to stay sane?
Weren't all the greats at least a little bit crazy?
Who sets the benchmark?
How calm is too calm?
Is it good for you...
(even if just once in a blue moon)
...to just go batpoop mad?
What brings you back down ... to the stillness, to the quiet?
Tips to achieve a balance between the go and the stop?
Balance... there's that word again.
I think that's what the future holds for me right now
The challenge of learning to wise-up and let go
Let go of the stuff that does NOT matter
(and let's face it ... only 5% REALLY matters... agreed?)
..and allow what really needs to happen... to happen
I'm thinking (too much)...
... and I'm ready to stop now
To REALLY stop.
The chatter, the crazy, the whoosh, the whirr... you know what I mean yes?
I'm after that stuff they call "inner peace" ...
and if you've just gagged or baulked or rolled your eyes I can understand
It's such a cliche nowadays that I think we've lost sight
of what it means to have a stillness that you can rely on...
... an inner sanctum that nothing can penetrate...
So much stuff whizzing about the place... the news (eek)
the net, the papers, the shops, the sounds, the workplace, the traffic...
Just Shhhh for one second please.
I need some calm
... and I need it now
