Serenity
In seeking a place of serenity we sometimes find ourselves going through rage.  We fight against the people or circumstances that we perceive are keeping us from the place of peace.  Yogis have a saying — no matter how twisted we are on the outside, inside we
remain calm.  The ability to find our internal peace even as we go through the storms of life is a skill; one that we can develop using mindfulness, practicing metta (loving-kindness), and practicing peace when times are not so difficult.  In those times
that our internal peace seems lost, the serenity prayer can be useful:
God grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.
~May you find the peace you are seeking.  Namaste, Reena

“This peace will come about when we all see ourselves in the other person and above all see something beautiful, good and true, something of God in all those who are different.” — Jean Vanier, from Letters of Jean Vanier – December 2012

“Let us not pay too much attention to the headlines of the newspapers which so frequently proclaim disaster, but let us listen instead to those men and women who sow peace in small ways, with little moments of forgiveness each day.” — Jean Vanier, from Letter of Jean Vanier – December 2012 http://jv.asso-jean-vanier.org/f/nf49jv
