Peace: Confident Yet Satisfied

IMG_1163.JPG
I had a thought yesterday that went something like this….

If someone offered me a million dollars to change myself… To stop being dramatic and just let life and the things that are inside of it go… Would I do it…

The pay off would be the money… The incentive would be the money…

But as I started thinking about it more I realized it’s a much greater trade off to gain peace… Rather than a million dollars…

And I say all of this because I feel like cultivating a heart of peace is a challenge for me….

So far… When I look at peace… I see that it is quiet and still… It doesn’t have to have a lot going on… It’s confident and secure with what it’s doing in the moment… Even if that security is based in the fact that it doesn’t know what’s coming next…

I feel like peace is confident in the unknown…. Its confident in the unknown and satisfied with the present…

And that’s what I’m aiming to cultivate right now… A peaceful heart and mind… One that is confident in the unknown and satisfied with the present… One that can just be…. That can be in a moment and not feel pressured by the outside world around me…

The outside world that constantly tells me I need to be doing a million and one things… That I need to be comparing myself to others through social media… And that I’m not doing enough…

If I could simply look at the inside world… The one going on on the inside of me… It’s calm… It’s collected… It’s still…

So that’s my focus… It’s my aim… To continue to cultivate the peace inside of me and then carry it with me… And to focus on it when I feel overwhelmed by the unknown and unsatisfied with the present….

And maybe it’s easier said than done… And I probably don’t look at where I’ve been and how far my story has taken me enough…. But I know that once I learn to just live in peace… Well life will continue to stay balanced and even… And I’m ok with that..
