Inner Peace & Persistence

No doubt some form of online and indoor exercise has become a staple in your confinement routine. Perhaps you’ve started a 30 Days of Yoga, and good for you. Perhaps you’re following some of the daily meditation or reflective practices online. Perhaps you’re seeking solace with the wisdom from some renown spiritual leader…

All are good options for cultivating an aspect of life that this period is offering us – to become quiet for long enough to connect to our inner world; to stop and breathe into whatever it is that we find there, whether it’s pretty, or, as is more likely, it’s raw, vulnerable and somewhat uncomfortable…

It’s only through exploring our inner world, that we have any way of reaching some kind of inner peace.

And inner peace has a whole lot of pluses to it. It’s a reliable space – a space that you don’t have to negotiate over, that is a given right of incarnation should we so choose to embrace it – plus, it’s the only place that you have the option of full power over.

Inner peace is the not some far-fetched idea either. It may, of course, be more difficult to carve out depending on your circumstances, but it’s equally available to each of us. Because it’s a choice.

You just have to choose what it looks like to you…and you have to persevere.

Firstly, we have to work to achieve it, and secondly we have to be persistent to retaining it because there are a whole of pulls to take you away from that space…
