30 Days of Peace. 9

Inner peace is a dynamic choice that leads to a dynamic way of being in the world. And … it doesn’t tend to happen all by itself. Peace develops out of that voluntary state of mindfulness called choice. The more mindful we are about choosing to be at peace, the more we experience it. The more we experience it, the more we come to treasure it. The more we treasure our peace of mind, the more expansive it becomes.

Peace takes practice and practice takes discipline, which is simply knowing what you want to experience, and then choosing it consistently. The core choice is basic; it’s between fear and peace. It begins with mindfully asking ourselves, what do I want to experience as I face people and events each day.

30-Second Time Out for Peace

  • Stop what you’re doing and step away from the world for a moment.

  • Let go of what you were thinking and allow yourself to relax a little.

  • Now allow yourself to relax a little more.

  • Let go of everything. Feel your brain relax as you let go.

  • No worries, no problems, no goals. Just let them all go for a moment.

  • Take a slow, deep breath – and as you do – let your mind and heart open wide.

  • Allow peace to begin to emerge as your experience, all by itself.
