For the past few days, I have been pondering the matter of finding peace.
One thought I have is that you know you have found peace when you check inside and encounter your own presence instead of a void.
I think this because peace has to do with wholeness rather than lack of noise or challenge.
I searched for some interesting quotes and found a few that I liked:
“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.”
So true; in fact, I would say it is as you live that you find peace.
“There is a criterion by which you can judge whether the thoughts you are thinking and the things you are doing are right for you. The criterion is: Have they brought you inner peace?”
“When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others.”
And finally, just so there is something to help you laugh:
“If you can’t get rid of the skeleton in your closet you’d best teach it to dance.”
George Bernard Shaw
