I am peace within, and I choose peace without.
Inner peace and outer peace are closely linked. Inner peace does not depend on outer conditions. Still, I seek out peaceful places and people on my path to serenity. I may create time in my schedule for solitude in nature—perhaps a walk in the park or in my own backyard. I also plan sacred time at home and enjoy a period of quiet each day. I surround myself with compassionate people who share a commitment to a spiritual path. I belong to a spiritual community in which I am supported and uplifted. Here, I am a peaceful presence for others. As I make peaceful choices for my life, I embody inner peace.
And if anyone is there who shares in peace, your peace will rest on that person; but if not, it will return to you.—Luke 10:6
