Inner peace isn’t just something we achieve and then we are finished. I am sure you’ve heard, 𝓲𝓽’𝓼 𝓪𝓫𝓸𝓾𝓽 𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝓳𝓸𝓾𝓻𝓷𝓮𝔂, 𝓷𝓸𝓽 𝓽𝓱𝓮 𝓭𝓮𝓼𝓽𝓲𝓷𝓪𝓽𝓲𝓸𝓷.
Inner peace is something that we constantly work towards. Throughout our lives, many opportunities will arise that TEST our inner peace. It can range from illness, death, political conflict, racism, etc.
There will always be polarity in this world. Inner peace is an inner- state that you reach when you choose peace over 𝕚𝕝𝕝𝕦𝕤𝕚𝕠𝕟. It is a place within where you are calm and at ease.
Things may hurt or feel difficult, but when you have inner peace, you will be able to calmly observe your emotions without uncontrollably reacting to the outer chaos.
Furthermore, you will be able to notice the value even in the most difficult experiences.
For example, before I became aware that 𝐈 𝐀𝐌 𝐍𝐎𝐓 𝐌𝐘 𝐓𝐇𝐎𝐔𝐆𝐇𝐓𝐒- my emotions were running the show.
I always said that if one of my beloved animals died, I would close my heart. I would not talk to anyone. I would put up a wall and I would run away from the pain.
I am incredibly grateful for my 𝒎𝒊𝒏𝒅𝒇𝒖𝒍𝒏𝒆𝒔𝒔 𝒑𝒓𝒂𝒄𝒕𝒊𝒄𝒆𝒔 because a few weeks ago, my sweet old kitty made his transition.
My heart physically hurt and I grieved, but it was so beautiful. It was so liberating to 𝗙𝗘𝗘𝗟 those emotions and BE WITH THEM. I cried for a few days. I took my time and allowed myself to really feel that pain and then it was gone.
Some situations are ongoing and will need to be met differently, such as the systematic racism that we are currently facing. But even though there is massive injustice happening globally, if we want to feel inner peace, we must notice the opportunity in each experience.
Things don’t have to hurt. When we choose to see the value in the experience is when our lives really begin to CHANGE.
“How can you say this? This is white privilege” – My response to you is: I acknowledge my privilege as a blonde-haired white woman, but that doesn’t mean this doesn’t still apply to everyone. We operate at a higher level when we are at peace, so If we want change, we must first seek change within.
We can do this in every situation. There will be things that feel like they hurt, but if we sit with them and try to understand them in the moment, we can sit them down and move forward.
When we DON’T acknowledge our pain or grief and choose to sweep it under the rug, it’s like putting a band-aid on a broken bone. We need to reset the bone, so-to-speak, and possibly even wear a cast for a few months.
Inner peace is obtained when we face hard things rather than cowering away from them. This doesn’t mean that we have to find challenges to go through to make us stronger- life will provide you with every single experience that you need to fulfill your mission in this life.
We must listen to our bodies and sit with our emotions. When we avoid the emotions that we judge as “bad” we are Spiritually Bypassing. Lean into the darkness and we will find peace.
Is there something uncomfortable that you are feeling called to lean into?
