Got Peace?

beach-123844_640One of the best definitions of peace is to discover that it is not in a place where there is no trouble, hard work or noise.  But to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.  One of the most healing things we can do for our life, is to create a spiritual connection.

Having a spiritual life, helps us to take a step back and understand why we are here.  If we find ourselves stuck or disillusioned by fear, having a spiritual practice helps us in those moments to step back and stay remain centered.  Becoming a critical or fearful person, throughout the day is not a soulful approach to living.

Our spiritual practice reminds us to be still and let go of fearful emotions and negative thinking.  How we can develop greater clarity is to read and follow the “25 Helpful Personal Bill of Rights” steps below. 

Brain Weiss from his spiritual bestselling novel says “If we can gradually decrease our concern with functioning and fitting into our sick society, with acquiring things and worrying about what other people are thinking about us, then we can gradually begin to increase our inner joy and find peace.”  Other ways we may set out to finding more spiritual practice in our lives is attending church, practicing yoga, meditation, and use of herbal medicines and other alternative healing remedies.
