Choose Inner Peace and a Less Stressful Life

Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.
- Dalai Lama

Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
- Saint Francis de Sales

At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.
- Lao Tzu

The outer world will always attempt to pull you this way and push you that. There will always be external pressures from financial issues, career issues, health issues, relationship issues and more. Further, the TV news will always attempt to manipulate your emotions to increase your upset and anger at the seemingly rampant injustices of the world.

Nonetheless, you do always have the ability to resist these external stressors, and to live in inner peace and happiness. You can choose how you prefer to respond to external events, and you can train yourself to minimize your stress and maximize the joy you receive from life.

Stop! Breathe deeply. Begin bringing peace to the outer world by regaining your own inner peace. Choose love, choose gratitude, choose forgiveness, choose peace. Begin with your own inner peace. Then use that inner peace as a platform from which to approach the outer world with perspective, understanding, and patience.
