First keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.
~ Thomas a Kempis (1380-1471)
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.
Some signs to look for:
A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
An unmistakeable 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.
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.
