quietness of the heart.
I've kept these words of an anonymous author in my heart:
Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
is is to have no trouble
it is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore; to wonder at nothing that is done to me to feel nothing done against me, it is to be at rest when nobody praises me and when i am blamed or despised is is to have a blessed home in myself where i can go in and shut the door and kneel to my father in secret and be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and about is seeming trouble.
that's what i truly want underneath my strong image all i want is to be at rest when nobody praises me i believe that is true freedom. sometimes i must ask god to point me to true north, true humility true peace. It doesn't matter one whit what anyone thinks of me i will be true to myself and god.
