Symptoms of Inner Peace
How I really feel
A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than acting on fears attached to past experience

An unmistakable ability to enjoy the moment

A loss of interest in judging other people

A loss of interest in judging self

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others

An inability to worry (this is a very serious symptom!)

Frequent overwhelming episodes of appreciation

Frequent acts of smiling

An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than to make them happen

An increased susceptibility to the Love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it


Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of a great many already have been exposed and it is possible that people, everywhere, could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what, up to now, has been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

If you have some or all of the above symptoms, be advised that your condition of inner peace may be too far advanced to be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk.

Hi Nathan
I was very touched by your "current music: the sound of my brother breathing."

Thanks for posting SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE™! Just thought I would write to let you know that I wrote it. Your posting is the heart of a larger piece that I have posted at I would love it if you could link to the site! Even if you can't, I would appreciate it if you would add my name, as author, my 1984 copyright and mention that reprint permission information can be found at the website. (There is also poster available there.)

And, finally, would you mind dropping me a note, with the URL to say when it's been done?
With appreciation,
Saskia Davis, Author

Brothers. Both of them. *smiles*

I will link to your site, as well as add your name. I transcribed it as it was written in Sonia Ricotti's book, The Law of Attraction Plain and Simple: Create the Extraordinary Life That You Deserve. You can find it on page 103. If you are going to get in touch with Ricotti, her core website is Lead Out Loud dot com.


Beautiful! Thank you! Blessings, Saskia

That's something that makes a truly great piece of writing, if other's can look at it and it fits so well!

Thank you for posting this. I'm ticking yes to much of this list more and more as time goes on. It's wonderful!

It touched us. I thought it would touch others, too. There are many of us who are in this mindspace.
