Working towards inner calm is something we 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’s 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. People who possess these qualities are usually able to handle difficult issues, with a knowing that those issues will eventually pass. They are also more aware and accepting of themselves and will usually take any difficult issues in their stride.
We find inner calm when we stop passing judgment, stop drawing ourselves into conflict and put conflict out. Following a more spiritual path makes us aware of how to achieve inner calm and although we generally have things to sort out, we will have a more peaceful demeanor about ourselves.
Inner calm allows us to see a deep appreciation of the world and allows us to pave the way to be kind to others, without others having to ask.
