Watch your manner of speech if you wish to develop a peaceful state of mind. Start each day by affirming peaceful, contented, and happy attitudes, and your days will tend to be pleasant and successful.
- Norman Vincent Peale
"We can feel ourselves soften when we move our attention from self-defeating thoughts to our hearts, where love lives. Our minds empty and rest in these moments, and we find peace.
"Practicing this on a regular basis makes it easier to find peace when stress and conflict creep into our minds and into our lives. The more often we practice, the easier it becomes. Eventually it becomes automatic. When stress arrives, we become aware of our self-talk and we move our focus to our hearts instead.
"Staying in our negative thoughts creates unpleasant emotions. Moving into our hearts creates peace. And we deserve to feel peaceful."
"Today I am bringing my conscious awareness into a place where I can find love and peace. Today I turn to my heart"
