As an ode to the Desiderata I will post only that which I’ve retained into my memory until my goal has been reached. Repetition will help, and so will sharing it with your One spirit. If it is an experience you’d also like to undertake, I would be more than delighted to know how it is affecting the beautiful miracle that is your life.
Desiderata (as B*, aka The·One, remembers it by heart so far…)
Go placidly amidst the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there is in silence. Speak your truth quietly and softly, and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself to others, you may become vain and bitter; for there will always be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your accomplishments as well as your plans.
~Max Ehrnmann, 1927
