Serenity — that wondrous state of being calm, peaceful and untroubled.
But how do we get there? You get quiet — it’s really that simple.
“Nothing is so aggravating as calmness.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Have you ever tried remaining calm when someone else is raging at you? Have you noticed how quickly they stop? Why is that? Well, you look like an idiot for one thing — it’s the best form of defense.
Serenity is all about being calm in the face of reality and in the words of Lao Tzu:
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
When you are able to observe your emotions as they rise within you, you will begin to master having greater control of how you act upon them — if at all.
