“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.” ~Eckhart Tolle …
Peace within our soul cannot be shared, bartered, bought, or gifted. It is only available to us through our own determination to seek out “who we are at the deepest level.” And it is there, that we will find peace–know it and become it. And most importantly, once we find it… it cannot be taken from us without our consent.
Peace is such a glorious thing to find and to possess. With it, our minds and hearts work in unison, and this world becomes a much different place–a place of with love and compassion, a place filled with purpose and meaning, a place that is life giving and reaffirming of the peace within our heart.
But can we find peace outside of ourselves? Can we move things around in our lives to make peace? Surely, it is possible for some outside sources to change us inside–in our hearts and spirits–for I have experienced some such changes during my life–the birth of my children and the death of a loved one. However, time and experience has taught me that until I am ready to experience peace within me, I will not find it no matter what my outside circumstances are.
When we are ready for peace, we must find it. We must embark on that journey of self-discovery, come to understand who we are, and then accept the peace within us.
Take a moment to seek for some peace within.
Questions to consider:
Have you found a lasting peace within yourself?
Do you know how to access that peace during times of need, or do you find yourself losing it in stressful and hectic times?
Why do most of us not know the peace inside ourselves as we grow? What are some things you can do to seek and to find more peace in your life?
