Peace is illusive.
It is not something that can be bought like a trinket in a shop.
It’s not something that is merely willed into reality, nor obtained through violence.
Peace must be cultivated within oneself. It is a state of being that must be actively pursued. Only through stillness and introspection can one hope to find the peace that so often eludes us in our busy lives.
And even then, it is not always easy to maintain. Life has a way of intruding on our best intentions.
But if we can remember to take even just a few moments each day to focus on our breath and connect with our innermost selves, we will be well on our way to making peace a part of our everyday lives.
And that peace…it ripples out. It effects those around you, too. Your peace, your calmness…it transfers to those around you.
This is your reminder to take a few moments and connect with yourself and cultivate inner peace.
You deserve it.
