Navigating to Inner Peace
“Changing the world for the better begins with individuals creating inner peace within themselves.” – Dalai Lama
Inner peace can sometimes seem like a difficult thing to accomplish, like an out-of-reach level of enlightenment that’s only obtained by yogis or spiritual masters. But this is not the case. We go through life shouldering the baggage of someone else’s story, their programmed behaviors and limiting beliefs. If we listen to what is really being said, in the background the distorted messages of “You’re not good enough,” “You’ll never amount to anything,” and “You’re not worthy,” are really old recordings of a story that someone else decided to believe.
Perhaps our great-grandparents were told this by their parents and then shared that with their children. Perhaps a boss hears that from a supervisor on a daily basis and continues the cycle with his employees. Maybe it’s something that a coach or mentor has said with the intent in offering “constructive criticism,” but instead delivers a heartbreaking pain that lasts a lifetime. However it shows up, it’s a limited belief that is then handed down as if it’s a right of passage.
In all of this you have a choice. You can choose to believe what you have been told, or question everything and develop new beliefs about yourself, what you value and who it is that you are. You are worthy, you are amazing, you are always good enough, and so much more. When you know this in your heart to be true, the inner dialogue quiets and you are left with a new way of being, one that has brought you to the the path of inner peace. As every journey begins with a single step, so does your path toward developing inner peace.
