I Am Seeking Inner Peace

    Did a lot of drugs. Joined the Navy.

    Went to college, met a girl, went to grad school and got a PhD in engineering, got married, had two kids. Was told "I never loved you, I only wanted (smart) kids." As the divorce proceeded, I bought a motorcycle. I wrecked that bike, and it literally killed me. That whole...

    Desiderata

    Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their...

    How can you accept yourself today?

    My best advice is in three small words: be a duck! Let the judgment and criticism from others slide off your beak like water, swim how you want to swim, look goofy with your bum in the air, make silly sounds, do whatever makes you happy without caring what anyone else thinks...

    Being Real

    I read the spell-binding novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn this summer and a powerful passage from it has been rattling around in my head ever since. Haunting me, taunting me--encouraging me to search for and recognize my own feelings, my own thoughts, my own sense of wonder and...

    Inner Peace.....

    Ever since I can remember, in my youth, I enjoyed walking the nature`s paths and biking all over the place. I did know that this was connecting me to the most important part of my being. Now as an adult, I see how I still do these activities. I now walk through the forest...

    Here. Now.

    Life. L-I-F-E. A word consisting of four

    letters. What does it really mean? I am asking the question. I really don't know the answer. I'm old enough to know what life is all about, but... I wonder. Even those lucky few who are 100... can they answer this simple question? I wake up, I go through the motions of a regular...

    result it gives in our heart and mind, peace or lack of peace.

    As I approach my mid fifties I am learning that most of the chaos in my life in one way or another came from my own lack of willingness to "let things or people go" when we no longer serve to feed one another's spirit. Blessing a person and then letting go of that person...... is...

    I've found inner peace myself.

    It's the most wonderful feeling, coming to terms that the only thing that matters, is the exact moment you're in. The past is gone, don't dwell on it. And the future is not set. Focus on right now. Through meditation I got away from the stress that was created by the weight of...
