Expanding Inner Peace
Moreah Vestan

What can I do this week to deepen and expand my inner peace? Do you notice a difference inside in your level of inner steadiness when you handle things you used to put up with or agonize over?

When you make new choices that support your peace and fulfillment, you feel more clarity and resolve, less at the mercy of the external world. What can you do to promote peace for yourself? Perhaps the first step is to list the areas of your life in which you want more inner and outer harmony. For instance, do you go along with whatever a partner says in order to "keep the peace"? You could be paying a heavy inward price for that outer "peace". This next week, notice how many of the following are true for you. And pick one area you want to increase your awareness of. Focus on that a few minutes each day.

I don't know the author of the following, Symptoms Of Inner Peace:

Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to inner peace and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world. Some signs to look for:

** A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.

** An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

** A loss of interest in judging other people.

** A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.

** A loss of interest in conflict.

** A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)

** Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

** Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.

** Frequent attacks of smiling.

** An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

** An increased susceptibility to the love offered by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.

I wish you peace. It is yours by being, feeling and choosing it.
