Inner peace

One that never really left my memory! I think I've met her elsewhere before, if, my elephant memories is right. You know what they say about first love and all that? If you don't, then perhaps I might write about it one fine day but just not today! Have you ever heard about the term "inner peace?"

I've yet to meet someone whose life was filled with inner peace. The need for perfection and the desire for inner transquility conflict with each other.Whatever we are attached to having something a certain way, better than it already is, we are, almost by definition, engaged in a losing battle. Rather than being content and grateful for what we have, we are focused on what's wrong with something and our need to fix it. When we are zeroed in on what's wrong, it implies that we are dissatisfied, discontent.

Whether it's realated to ourselves, a disorganised closet, a scratch on the car, an imperfect accomplishment, a few kilos we would like to lose, or someone else's "imperfections", the very act of focusing on imperfection pulls us away from our goal of being kind and gentle.This strategy has nothing to do with ceasing to do our very best but being overly attached and focused on what's wrong with life. It's about realizing that while there's a better way to do something and appreciate the way things already are.

The solution is to catch ourself when we fall into our habit of insisting that things should be other than they are.
