It’s not that hard to calm the central nervous system. Look at a beautiful picture, and breathe deeply. Imagine a place that is special to you, and breathe deeply. Close your eyes, and breathe deeply. Sit in the light of the sun, and breathe deeply. Take a walk, and breathe deeply. Sit beside water, and breathe deeply. Gaze at the night sky, and breathe deeply. There are so many opportunities in a day to get calm, to take care of yourself for a few moments, and to align with your own spirit. Just do it, just breathe.
Strive always to maintain a certain kind of balance. Make choices that keep you in a good frame of mind, in good physical shape, and that are spiritually nurturing. Do not be overcome by anything but seek always a measure of calmness so that emotions are handled as they arise. Sometimes excess is appropriate but on a daily basis modesty and moderation are most appropriate in all things.
When the mind revs with worry, slow it down with the breath, by focusing on breathing in and out deeply, by counting the breath, the holding time, and the exhalation. Give the mind a rest by refocusing it on something productive, for a mind that spins out of control is good for nothing. Let the spirit take over and bring you out of your spin and into a place of calmness, into peaceful oneness with nature, inside and out.
Seek calmness within the self, in mind, body and spirit. A calm mind, body and heart will allow you to weather through anything with dignity, intelligence, and prowess. When agitated, decisions may not be made for the best. But even in the worst of times a calm body, mind, and heart will bring forth what is most needed and advantageous. Practice calm breathing, calm walking, and calm meditation, no matter the situation.
Refrain from thinking too much; it usually only inhibits the spirit, the High Self, from being heard. Instead, let quiet permeate the mind, and the creative will soon stir within you. In this manner, notice the beauty that abounds in your world, the peace and calmness that surround you, and the joy that life offers. In simple mindlessness, without thought or ego intrusion, note how everything is just fine, how there are no problems and all is well, all is well. Practice quiet meditation throughout the day, a minute here and a minute there, and this is what you will experience.
