True peace is cultivated from within. When outside circumstances have enough influence over your mood to change your mental emotional and spiritual state, go back within and re-cultivate your peace.
There was a special moment when I lived in Los Angeles. I was sitting in bumper to bumper traffic on one of the busiest highways in the country. I was in such a peaceful space that I felt gratitude to live in such an awesome location that so many people would want to live there. I felt grateful for the people with whom I shared that traffic jam and for the individuality that they brought to that great city.
Now that I’ve left Los Angeles, I do not miss that traffic. But, I’m grateful for the memory of the moment my inner peace transcended a daily traffic jam.
