The Face of Peace Revealed

“The Face of Peace”

by Shifu Ahles

Be diligent in your awareness.

Recognize what IS, and accept it.

Never argue, complain, or fight against it.

Focus your energy on what is within your control.

What is the cause of the effect you are experiencing?

If there is something you can do about it, do it.

If there is something you can change, change it.

If, after deep contemplation and consideration,

you find nothing you can do and nothing you can change, then release it.

Watch your thoughts and you will discover the root of your suffering.

Be quite; be still,

And the face of peace will be revealed.

I have printed a copy of your poem and I plan to pin it to my cubicle at work if you don’t mind. I plan to read it everytime I feel stressed out with deadlines and distracted at work. I know that the face of peace will be revealed to me.

Thanks for this inspirational and motivational poetry. I hope more people would read it be touched by it like it did to me. I hope to read more of your poetry in the weeks to come. Be safe always.

This is so inspirational. I think that we all spend too much time and energy trying to change things that we cannot change. “Accept what IS” is a phrase to live by! Thanks again for this wonderful motivation!
