For Your Peace of Mind: A Consumer’s Guide to Psychology https://www.psychology.ca.gov/forms_pubs/consumer_guide.pdf
Let there be an opening
into the quiet
that lies beneath the chaos,
where you find the peace
you did not think possible
and see what shimmers
within the storm.
It is a wonderful day in a life
when one is finally able to stand
before the long, deep mirror of one’s own reflection
and view oneself
with appreciation, acceptance, and forgiveness.
On that day
one breaks through the falsity of images and expectations
which have blinded one’s spirit.
One can only learn to see who one is
when one learns to view oneself
with the most intimate and forgiving
compassion. –John O’Donohue
