God is a Being, still and peaceful,
dwelling in the still eternity.
Therefore should your mind be
as a still, clear mountain tarn,
reflecting the glory of God as in a mirror
where the image is unbroken
and perfect.
Avoid therefore all that would
disturb and confuse and stir up
your natural mind,
from without or within.
How precious and useful
is a still and quiet spirit
in the eyes of God.
