For a long time, I sought peace outside of myself. I looked everywhere a person could seek. High, low and everywhere in between.
Turns out, I didn’t look high enough – God was above all of the highest ideals I sought. Above everything I valued most. I didn’t look there and I didn’t look inside myself.
The truth is that peace exists within us at all times. It is at the core of our own true nature. How God made us. So, being at peace with ourselves means being at peace with God and vice versa.
That state of deep peace can’t be gotten through the external world. Its not achieved through acquiring possessions or positions, or even the love of other people.
