Daily Balm Monthly Collection February 2022


“To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to the violence of our times.”― Thomas Merton

In our world, crammed with information and activity, you may feel the need for some respite. I created the Daily Balm messages to flow soothing energy and kindness into your daily round and am now gathering them into monthly collections, and this one is from February 2022.

With much love from our home to yours.


1 February 2022 – A Web of Thoughts

Our thoughts create a web

That can block us from reality.

To pause.

Quieten the noise

Say 'No'

Darkness banished by fresh light

With hope held at dawn.

Carrying you through

As you greet a new morn.

You are still here.

Maybe you simply needed to rest awhile.

Pausing to catch joy...

Oh, what a moment.

As lovely as it is to spend time together

Sometimes you need peace

Away from the noise and distractions.


Time to be...just you.

27 February 2022 – Wisdom


When I have ceased to break my wings,

Against the faultiness of things,

And learned that compromises wait

Behind each hardly opened gate,

When I have looked Life in the eyes,

Grown calm and very coldly wise,

Life will have given me the Truth,

And taken in youth.

by Sara Teasdale

28 February 2022 – Storm Clouds

Hidden in Layers

Every storm is layered

As is every life experience.

Observe and question...

'What can I learn from this storm?'

Hold the belief in your heart

That every storm eventually clears.
