Quotes from the Masters: Ovid

“Happy is the man who has broken the chains which hurt the mind, and has given up worrying once and for all.”  Ovid

We all experience anxiety; when we are bothered by persistent fears or concerns, when we fret, fuss and stew; when apprehension overtakes our days and the swift current of worry seems to propel us towards the brink.

If we can look inward and search for our strength, and look upward to our higher power, if we can let our worries flow and watch them dissipate …

the path becomes clearer …
            

If we could free ourselves of worry, we could see the beauty.

  1. Stunning photos! I hope we get to see that place in the fall when in Paris. And truer words…So true about anxiety. I’ve been thinking lately about learning meditation of yoga. Might be good for me!

  4. I think this is so profoundly lovely and true :-). I have learned to let go and let God in many ways. Also realised that holding on to the blessings in my life, and keeping them in mind, makes me a more joy-filled person 🙂
