The Peace Within > The chaos Without

“When you can be calm in the midst of activity, this is the true state of nature. When you can be happy in the midst of hardship, then you see the true potential of the mind.” – Unknown

You ever wonder why when it’s just you and your thoughts with no distractions, you are most at peace? Our days are filed with deadlines, obligations, fulfillments, and the like. So when do we have time for ourselves? Our minds tend to wander here and there about any and every little thing until the focus is on nothing. Take the time to relax. Inhale peace and contentment. Exhale stress and negative energy.

“Be still and know that I am God”

When you further analyze this statement, you realize that to be still is to be in a state of calmness (at peace). To know that despite how things may appear to be, the universe is watching and planning something good on your behalf.

And he arose and rebuked the wind,and said unto the sea, Peace be Still, and the wind ceased and there was a great calm. (Mark4:39)
Now my grandmother use to say this passage all the time to us when she wanted us to calm down and be quiet. She also would say it during thunder storms. She said by being still we were showing respect to God's Power and Glory. Now you can beleive that or not but if we all would just a moment out of each day to meditate and just be still we could probably enjoy the fruits of our labor more and just enjoy natures beauty and wonder. Just slow the hell down and enjoy more.
