CLEAR TO LAND ON RUNWAY THREE




SERENITY NOW

From this man I have learned so much:

Be Serene This Moment


I exist in only one moment at a time. To be serene I only need to be serene during that moment. I create serenity when I think serene thoughts and mentally picture serene scenes. I create serenity when I breathe slowly and deeply and relax my muscles. I create serenity when I vividly remember scenes of being serene. Regardless of how I have been at any given moment later on, I only need to be serene this moment. I should say to myself throughout the day: "Be serene this moment".

Serenity Promotes Harmonious Relationships


Serenity promotes peaceful and harmonious relationships with other people. “As in water, face to face, so too is the heart of one person to another” . When you speak serenely to someone, the peaceful energy puts the other person in a better state, and usually that person will speak more pleasantly to you.

From Rabbi Pliskin’s new book, Serenity

I just felt extra serene today,
so decided to spread it around a bit
--like apple butter(?).
Hope someone who needs it
will read this today....
I did.

Peace and Love, Steveroni

I'm watching the sun rise over the islands this morning, the oranges and reds and then I read about serenity. Breathing and relaxing. (I am worrying about my addicted kid.)

Thanks for this post. Wait, thanks for all your posts.

I love that... Thanks for sharing, Steve-a-roni.

Gotta say though... The Rabbi's last name brought up something completely different.

"Snaaaaaake Pliskin..."

Escape from New York. Remember?
