inner peace

Some time ago I passed along the following to my friends.  I thought it was worth posting on my blog.

I was thumbing through a journal that my aunt (my mom’s twin sister) had passed along a few years ago now when I ran across something that she had read and scribbled down.  It struck a chord for me as I had battled Lyme Disease and she herself had been fighting cancer—which finally claimed her life (certainly not her spirit) back in September of 2006.

Symptoms of Inner Peace

1. A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on passed experiences. 

2. An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

3. A loss of interest in judging other people.

4. A loss of interest in judging self.

5. A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.

6. A loss of interest in conflict.

7. A loss of the ability to worry (this is a very serious symptom.)

8. Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

9. Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.

10. Frequent attacks of smiling.

11. An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

12. An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend it.
