POEM OF THE DAY: Be at Peace with Your Own Soul

by Saint Isaac of Nineveh (ca. 7th century).

 

Be at Peace with Your Own Soul

 

Be at peace with your own soul

then heaven & earth will be at peace with you.

 

Enter eagerly into the treasure

house that is within you,

 

And you will see the things that are in heaven,                 5

for there is but one single entry to them both.

 

The ladder that leads to the Kingdom

is hidden within your soul…

 

Dive into yourself and in your soul

and you will discover the stairs                                              10

by which to ascend.
