In this time and age it’s hard to find serenity in our everyday life, the tempo in our life flows is probably to fast for our own good. So when is it possible to find that serenity? Do you even have a moment to yourself where you can gather your thoughts?
For me I have returned to an old friend, my bible, to find that serenity and calm inside myself. I read a Bibleplan every morning, and I take a moment to meditate over what I have read. But I think everyone can find their own way to find that inner quite and serenity, I sometimes also use quotes from other sources than the Bible in my meditations. One wise man i truly love to listen to is His Holiness Dalai Lama.
The Quite inside
For your health and your mind it’s important make stops in life to be able to catch your breaths. Some people never let themselves that moment, so they always have that stressful anxiety in the life. And that anxiety when it reaches full bloom can kill, and ruin your life. But there’s always hope, ’There’s always solutions’ which is my favorite quote from my father, one i live by.
All 12 step programs use the serenity prayer as a moment to find that inner peace and quite. For you that haven’t read it, or know it. Hereunder it is.
So find your inner serenity my friends and live an even more fulfilling life.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardship as the pathway to peace.
Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it.
Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with Him forever in the next.
