Be at peace, even in traffic.

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.
