Until inner conflict is ended (not just masked or medicated) peace of mind remains a myth. Searching for his happy place can cause a person so much anxiety that he never finds his place of inner peace.
To begin to notice silence is the first step in getting to know peace of mind. When inner peace is disturbed, self-focus is usually the disturber. Peace stays calm in the roar of the storm.
Quiet contemplation can cultivate contentment and produce a harvest of inner peace. Peace ponders patiently and produces contentment. Anxiety is disturbing, impulsive, and reactive. Panic pushes inner peace aside.
Sitting in restful silence can still an inner storm. Chaos knows no peace. Almost nothing rhymes with it.
Sometimes it’s important to make your mind sit still while you listen to your conscience. The search for peace is an inner journey, not an outward achievement.
