Working towards inner-calm is something we must continue to do daily, but it’s not something that can be afforded to us, without us having to work at it.
Inner-calm represents an inner quietness that allows us to see ourselves just as we are, enabling us to be more accepting of our faults, likes and dislikes as well as other people’s faults. A journey of self-discovery and understanding is all that is needed. We know we’re calm when the mind is free of aggression, free of simple frustrations and stressful tendencies.
Inner-calm allows us to seek out the simple pleasures in life. People who possess these qualities are usually able to handle difficult situations, with a knowing that those situations will eventually pass. They are also more aware and accepting of themselves and will usually take things in their stride.
We will find inner-calm when we stop passing judgment and stop drawing ourselves into conflict, or putting conflict out. Following a more spiritual path paves the way for us to achieve inner-calm. Managing it means we will have a more peaceful demeanor about us. Something we should all be striving for.
Inner-calm also allows us to have a deep appreciation of the world and what everything means. It also means we will have empathy, compassion, and tolerance, which enables us to be kind to others.
