INNER PEACE SYNDROME
by Saskia Davis, R.N.

First identified 25 years ago, the INNER PEACE SYNDROME is sweeping nations, worldwide. Insidious and highly contagious, it creeps silently through societies, infecting one heart at a time. Though no cure has been found, the following preventative measures have been identified: fear, worry, resentment anger, blame, guilt, self pity, attachment to perceptions, people or things, dishonesty with self or others, negative judgments. Regular  practice of any of the foregoing  has been found to thwart the onset of the inner peace syndrome. Prevention can be furthered by abstaining from certain attitudes and behaviors.

SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE:

* A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences

* An unmistakable ability to enjoy each 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

* A loss of interest in conflict

* A loss of  ability to worry

* Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation

* Contented feelings of connectedness with others & nature

* Frequent attacks of smiling

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

* An increased susceptibility to love extended by others and the uncontrollable urge to extend it

WARNING:
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. © 1984

    Happy New Year, Wendy!
    Yes, it’s been around for 25 years but has been changed and the authors name removed in many reproductions. Still a great message.

    I could add * Frequent uncontrolled giggling. 😉

  3. A code-red pandemic! Great list, thanks for sharing.
