Symptoms of Inner Peace rerun

Please note that Saskia Davis is the author of this widely emailed and posted piece called "Symptoms of Inner Peace".

Saskia posted on a site: Immediately after being published in 1984, “SYMPTOMS” took on a life of it’s own, traveling far and wide as it was passed among friends, to groups, newspapers, radio stations, and, eventually, onto websites, chat rooms and blogs. Along a few of its myriad paths my name, as author, was lost. You, apparently found one of the sources with no name or “unknown”. I am writing to request that you add my name back in SASKIA DAVIS

Many Blessings,
Saskia………Here, below, is the original version.

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

Some signs and symptoms of inner peace:
* A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past

* 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 the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)
* Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.
* Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.
* Frequent attacks of smiling. * An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
* An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the
uncontrollable urge to extend it.

If you have some or all of the above symptoms, please be advised that your condition of inner peace may be so far advanced as to not be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk.
