Peacefulness is an inner sense of calm – it comes from becoming still – in order to reflect and meditate on our inner wisdom and receive answers. A peaceful heart is one that is free from worry and trouble. It’s becoming quiet so we can look at things quietly so we can more clearly understand them and thus come up with creative solutions. It is learning to live in the present.
There are hundreds of tasks we feel we must accomplish in the day, but if we do not take them one at a time and let them pass through the day slowly and evenly, as do the grains of sand passing through the narrow neck of the hourglass, then we are bound to break our own physical
and mental structure.
Peace comes from living in the moment and looking for the good in others. Peacefulness comes from facing our fears and letting them, trust that things will turn out all right. Peacefulness is also a way of approaching conflict with others so no one is made wrong. Everyone wins because we then work to find a peaceful solution.
If half a century of living has taught me anything at all, it has taught me that nothing can bring you peace but yourself. God granted us the ability to CHOOSE what and who we want in our “living space” mental space….spiritual space….physical space…and emotional space.
The SOLUTION is this >>> stop making room for things that DON’T matter!
