Hi Team A/P!

Thought it would be nice if we could find some good writings, poetry, short stories, articles, etc. about healing and peace to put in this thread. You can post your original work as well. We need to stay on topic, within HW guidelines, and if you find something really long, please post a link to it so we don't exceed bandwidth :)

Hope is not the closing of your eyes
to the difficulty, the risk,
or the failure.

It is trust that-
If I fail now -
I shall not fail forever;
and if I am hurt,
I shall be healed .

It is trust that
Life is good.
love is powerful,
and the future is full of promise.

"I Will Not Doubt" (Annie Johnson Flint)

I will not doubt, though all my ships at sea
Come drifting home with broken masts and sails;
I will believe the Hand that never fails,
From seeming evil works to good for me.
And thought I weep because those sails are tattered,
Still will I cry, while my best hopes lie shattered,
"I trust in Thee."
I will not doubt, though all my prayers return
Unanswered from the still white realm above;
I will believe it is an all-wise Love
That has refused these things for which I yearn.
And though I cannot keep from grieving,
Yet the pure passion of my fixed believing,
Undimmed will burn.
I will not doubt, though sorrows fall like rain,
And troubles swarm like bees about a hive.
I will believe the heights for which I strive
Are only reached by anguish and by pain;
And though I groan and writhe beneath my crosses,
Yet will I see through my severest losses
The greater gain.
I will not doubt. Well anchored is this faith,
Like some staunch ship, my soul braves every gale;
So strong its courage that it will not fail
To face the mighty unknown sea of death.
Oh, may I cry, though body leaves the spirit,
"I do not doubt," so listening worlds may hear it,
With my last breath.

Very inspiring poem Maz :)

May you listen to your longing to be free.
May the frames of your belonging be large enough for the dreams of your soul.
May you arise each day with a voice of blessing whispering in your heart
...something good is going to happen to you.
May you find harmony between your soul and your life.
May the mansion of your soul never become a haunted place.
May you know the eternal longing that lies at the heart of time.
May there be kindness in your gaze when you look within.
May you never place walls between the light and yourself.
May you be set free from the prisons of guilt, fear, disappointment and despair.
May you allow the wild beauty of the invisible world to gather you,
mind you, and embrace you in belonging.
~John O'Donahoe~

Having a clear conscience and living in harmony with one's values and beliefs produces inner peace. But we are all human and cannot live up to the standards we set for ourselves. If we can, then possibly we have set the bar too low. Through our lifetimes we will need to forgive ourselves for many errors and wrongdoings. We may need to apologize to those we have wronged, make a confession, atone for our errors in some way. But we do not need to live our lives constantly castigating ourselves and sabotaging our lives because we are less than perfect. That frame of mind will invite more negativity into our lives. ~ author unknown
