Something very helpful:
Go to sleep and wake up at the same time with the birds - you will reap all of the days golden grains.
Eat more green - you will have legs and a resistant heart, like the beings of forest.
Look at the sky as often as possible and your thoughts will become light and clear.
Be quiet a lot - speak little - and silence will come in your heart, and your spirit will be calm and full of peace.

Life is so frequently unbearable–you think you can’t possibly go on. Life–the survival of life–is the getting up again and going on, and the means of doing this vary, but at the heart of all things moving forward is the realization–for me, at any rate–that the world, your friends, your own broken heart need your friendship and your laughter and your willingness to go on. Break down and acknowledge your loss, your anger, your diminishing assets, but fall right back on a laugh, a story, a meal–whatever you can cobble together and give to someone else, to yourself.
"My sadness has always been, I think, a reminder that, in my spell of solitude and serenity, the world was still out there getting beat up, people were in pain, and I need to get back to tending to them.
"The greatest gift sometimes is the outstretched hand.”
– Alec Guinness, in an Interview with James Grissom/1997
