The flutter and the flurry

How do we stop these constant fluctuations;
the aggravating bounce of thoughts
from pleasure to pain, from praise to blame,
from loss to gain, from disgrace to fame?
The hope of one vies with the fear of the other
to send us soaring up or plummeting down.
Breathe now: sink deep into the center of your soul
and find the still calm peace that lies 
beneath the ebb and flow, the flutter and the flurry.
