Last night I saw a friend who has been experiencing some challenges in her personal life I asked her how things were going. With a resigned look on her face she said, “About the same, which isn’t good.” I thought to myself, there is acceptance, but no inner peace. Two words, that sound so easy, but are so hard for all of us to achieve. Having spent 24 years in healthcare we identified symptoms of illness, but we never thought about “Symptoms” of a positive situation, so here are 12 Symptoms to think about of someone who experiences inner peace.
12 Symptoms of Inner Peace~ Saskia Davis
- An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.
- An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.
- A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.
- A loss of interest in judging other people.
- A loss of interest in judging self.
- 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 bouts of smiling.
- A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
- An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.
Look for ways to find your own “symptoms of inner peace” in your practice and in your heart. Be at peace with where you are in your practice and in your life. You are just where you should be. As you listen to the music I encourage you to awaken the inner peace within you.
