More Precious Than Gold

Who does not love a tranquil heart, a sweet tempered balanced life?
It does not matter whether it rains or shines
or what changes come to those possessing these blessings,
for they are always sweet, serene and calm.
That exquisite poise of character which we call serenity,
is the last lesson of culture,
it is the flowering of life,
the fruitage of the soul.
It is precious as wisdom
more to be desired than gold
yea, than even fine gold
How insignificant mere money seeking looks
in comparison with a serene life
a life that dwells in the ocean of truth
beneath the waves
beyond the reach of tempests
in the eternal calm.

As A Man Thinketh
James Allen
