"A cyclone derives its powers from a calm center. So does a person."
~ Norman Vincent Peale ~
Sitting quietly is generally a better help to me at such times than franticly rushing around and distracted busy-ness. I have to return myself to center, and too much movement keeps me lurching off track.
So when we find ourselves unexpectedly irritable, let's take five minutes and sit in silence; breathing, detaching from thinking, and listening with awareness to whatever we may hear.
I cure anxiety, restlessness, fear and agitation by slowing down, sitting down, and centering within.
