Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of operations of thought.
A person becomes calm in the measure that one understands themselves as a thought evolved being, for such knowledge necessitates the understanding of others as the result of thought, and as one develops a right understanding, and sees more and more clearly the relations of things by the action of cause and effect, one ceases to fuss and fume and worry and grieve, and remains serene.
The calm person, having learned how to regulate themselves, knows how to adapt themselves to others; and they, in turn, glorify in their spiritual strength, and feel that they can learn of them, and rely upon them.
The more tranquil a person becomes, the greater is their success, their influence, their power for good.
Self-control is strength.
Calmness is power.
Say unto your heart;
“Peace, Be Still.”
You can’t control how people behave. You can’t control everything that happens to you. What you can control is how you respond to it all.
In your response is your power.
