WHEN IT MATTERS

MY VIEW

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

O placidly amid the
noise and the haste,
and remember what peace
may be in silence.
As far as possible, without
surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and
clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive
persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with
others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater
and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well
as your plans.
Keep interested in your own
career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the
changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business
affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what
virtue there is;
many persons strive for high
ideals,
and everywhere life is full of
heroism.

Be yourself. Especially do not
feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and
disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the
years,
gracefully surrendering the things
of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield
you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with
dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue
and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the
stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to
you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding
as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and
aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and
broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
“You're going to meet many
people with domineering
personalities: the loud, the
obnoxious, those that noisily
stake their claims in your territory
and everywhere else they set
foot on.

This is the blueprint of a
predator. Predators prey on
gentleness, peace, calmness,
sweetness and any positivity
that they sniff out as weakness.
Anything that is happy and at
peace they mistake for
weakness.

It's not your job to
change these people, but it's
your job to show them that your
peace and gentleness do not
equate to weakness. I have
always appeared to be fragile
and delicate but the thing is, I am
not fragile and I am not delicate. I
am very gentle but I can show
you that the gentle also possess
a poison.

I compare myself to
silk. People mistake silk to be
weak but a silk handkerchief can
protect the wearer from a
gunshot. There are many people
who will want to befriend you if
you fit the description of what
they think is weak; predators
want to have friends that they
can dominate over because that
makes them feel strong and
important.

The truth is that
predators have no strength and
no courage. It is you who are
strong, and it is you who has
courage. I have lost many a
friend over the fact that when
they attempt to rip me, they can't.
They accuse me of being
deceiving; I am not deceiving, I
am just made of silk.

It is they
who are stupid and wrongly take
gentleness and fairness for
weakness. There are many more
predators in this world, so I want
you to be made of silk. You are
silk.
