Peace of mind gives us the strength to keep trying and keep walking along the path that we KNOW is right for our lives.  Robert Alan Silverstein

Inner Peace Quotes

In order for us to create peace in the world, we have to bring it back to ourselves first. In order for peace to begin in us, we have to begin to notice our own thoughts, our own feelings and the patterns that we are perpetuating in our own lives, and begin to correct that step-by-step in order to have a wider impact in our community or in the world at large. Sarah Wilkinson

Find this place. Mooji

Eternal Inner Peace has to be cultivated daily. Delphine-Gay de Girardin
I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the very core of our being, we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being. Cultivating a close, warm
hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are not solely material creatures, it is a mistake to place all our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace. Dalai Lama

People are born for different tasks, but in order to survive every one requires the same nourishment; inner peace. Sri Sathya Sai Baba
