If God brought you to it,
He will get you through it.

Peace Amid The Storm

Serenity is not freedom from the storm,
but peace amid the storm.

When you close your eyes, what do you see? Is it total darkness or is it light?

Whatever it is that you see, stay in that moment... savor that "space" for awhile.

Does your mind start to race? Does panic start to grip you?

Rid your mind of thoughts and be still. [Remember this: The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it. -Eckhart Tolle]

This quiet solitude is where you commune with your inner self- a place of harmony and peace.

"It is in the stillness of your mind where you find help for your soul."

Stillness brings forth the voice from within. It is mental and silent listening. To some, it is prayer and worship. For me, it is my private conversation with God- He talks, I listen.

"If you cannot find peace within yourself, you will never find it anywhere else."

We spend too much time and effort worrying about things we have no control of in the first place. In fact, we even try to change things that we cannot change when the wiser course is just to accept the inevitable.

Like a roller coaster ride, life will take us up and down, scaring and thrilling the hell out of us. There are no brakes nor steering wheel and there is no way out. Don't you think it's best to just sit back and enjoy the experience because we won't get a second ride?

You are so right Bing. Worrying about things we cannot change is such a waste of time and energy. It's hard to let go though.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

You hit this out of the ball park my friend. There is so much more to live than worrying how you can change things that you have no control over. Move on I say. xoxoxo

"Serenity is not freedom from the storm, but peace amid the storm." I totally agree with that. I have previously written a post before on the quietest place in the world. Some people have found peace while hiking, or in the mountains or in the forest. One joked that the quietest place is at the cemetery. However, I believe the quietest place in the world is found within each of us and that peace will not be disturbed by the external factor.

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.

"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino

If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
