Now for Something Completely Different: Calmness.

It’s time to stop  the rushing and working and worrying. You can always pick that up later. For now, as we come to the end of another year,  let’s all take a deep breath and calm ourselves.  As my holiday present,  I’ve put together a little virtual retreat for you. You’ll find some wonderful calming images, music, books, and quotations below. Start anywhere you like.  There’s the three minute Whispering Sea guitar video.  You can  feast your eyes on all the sumptuous calming images from Google. There are three books you might want to check out. There are also some insightful quotations on calmness, my favorite being:

The more tranquil a man becomes, the greater is his success, his influence, his power for good. Calmness of mind is one of the beautiful jewels of wisdom.
~James Allen

  1. Thank you for that! It’s been a hectic week and I needed someone to tell me it was ok to slow down. Peggy

  2. Dan, reading your blog always uplifts and today you have truly given us a little gift which I enjoyed immensely. My interests run right along parallel with everything you write about. Thank you for taking the time….

  3. @ Peggy. You’re welcome! Happy holidays!

  4. I’m very new at this–not even two years but have had great success–almost too much as I’m really scrambling. I really find your “blogs” very helpful and meaningful. Thank you, thank you and I hope the new year brings you only the best. Sincerely, Jean

  5. Dan,

    Thank you so much for sharing the video and other ways to bring calm into your life. Being on a beach and listening to the calming sounds of waves my idea of pure serenity.

    Have a wonderful holiday season!

    Rose Marie

  6. What bliss, Dan and what a superb gift at this hectic time of the year – a few moments of calm at the commencement of my busy, bustling Christmas Eve.

    My son and his fiancee fly into Perth from Adelaide at 2.35pm and my ‘to do’ list seems endless, but I have enjoyed 3 minutes of serenity before the rush and already feel more confident about facing the day.

    Wishing you a Christmas filled with peace, love and laughter, Dan.
