The Desiderata Week #1

"Go placidly amid the noise and hate and know what peace there may be in silence."

Give me your thoughts and opinions on what I feel is a life changing piece of literature. But that's just my opinion though, and who the hell am I?

I believe silence is a good meditating tool to use, especially when communing with God.

Silence when used in a positive manner, is a special quiet time that feeds back positive energy which may have been stolen from you through everyday stress, pressure and hassles of life. It is a source of creative power, creative ideas and a peace of mind.

Silence should never be a form or used in a way to communicate with other people.

I Love this poem and it is helpful to use along with a daily scripture.
That's my opinion.

My thought would be to embrace all the hate and noise with kindness, using silence to keep peace and squashing the existence of confrontation, tension, and dismay.

Reading this and thinking how to respond made me really and truly think about the idea of speaking to people the way you wish to be spoken too. Treating people the way you desire to be treated. When I first read this I imagine myself controlling my thoughts, feelings, and the way I share them among others. Strength is usually measured in the amount of how loud you yell, and how much fear you can place in someone. Strength is very seldom recognized in scarifies, such as not always being right. Strength could be measured how meekly you handle life, and how respectfully you present yourself to others.
Well that’s a little of what I got out of reading the testimonial, and more so if you read the entire reading daily as I try it may change your life.
