Finding the peace within

The search for inner peace seems to be stronger than ever these days. We are bombarded with self-help advice from every corner. A lot of it is perfectly good in theory, but when the going gets tough, the words of wisdom may be harder to follow. Today,  I'd like to share with you the blog of my friend Shaeri Richards, author of Dancing with your Dragon: The Art of Loving your Unlovable Self. Her approach is down to earth and has the true ring of someone who is walking their talk.

She writes, "Life happens.

Sometimes we might enjoy the way life is unfolding, other times it might feel challenging, painful and overwhelming.

The truth is that we cannot control what is happening in the world around us, yet we do have the power to find peace with life in our inner world.  Paradoxically, when we come to peace inside, our energy shifts and we may find we are attracting different types of situations to our outer world. But even if nothing changes on the outer, peace on the inner will make life more pleasant and fulfilling.

In a world where change is the only constant, coming to peace requires a certain ability to go with the flow, to allow life to be as it is.  It requires a certain surrender to the notion that try as we like, we don’t always get to have things how we want them and when we want them, which is usually “right now, thank you very much.”  [read full post]
