This is one of those quotes that takes a minute to absorb, in my opinion anyway. I mean, if you need courage for something, it’s probably hard or scary, and what’s so peaceful about that?
Peace comes from knowing that your activities, surroundings, and overall choices are in line with your intentions, values and priorities, all of which mindfulness can help connect you with. Sometimes, we realize that our decisions have led us a bit out of that alignment, and getting it back requires doing a few things that we’d rather not.
It sometimes takes courage to claim the peace that is rightfully yours. A great starting point for setting out in that direction? Inhale, exhale, repeat.
