Peace is its own reward

“My heart forgives and releases. Inner peace is my goal.” – Louise Hay

“Anything is possible when you have inner peace.” – Anonymous

“Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.” – Osho

“Do not let the behavior of others destroy your inner peace.” – Dalai Lama

“Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.” – Wayne W. Dyer

“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.” – Eckhart Tolle

“Inner peace can be reached only when we practice forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the past, and is therefore the means for correcting our misperceptions.” – Gerald G. Jampolsky

“Spirituality is not to be learned by flight from the world, or by running away from things, or by turning solitary and going apart from the world. Rather, we must learn an inner solitude wherever or with whomever we may be. We must learn to penetrate things and find God there.” – Meister Eckhartquotes

“Give up defining yourself – to yourself or to others. You won’t die. You will come to life. And don’t be concerned with how others define you. When they define you, they are limiting themselves, so it’s their problem. Whenever you interact with people, don’t be there primarily as a function or a role, but as the field of conscious Presence. You can only lose something that you have, but you cannot lose something that you are.”  – Eckhart Tolle

“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.” – Lao Tzu

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.”

“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” – Bruce Lee

“Not being tense but ready. Not thinking but not dreaming. Not being set but flexible. Liberation from the uneasy sense of confinement. It is being wholly and quietly alive, aware and alert, ready for whatever may come.” – Bruce Lee

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.” – Buddha

“Surrender to what is, let go of what was, have faith in what will be.” – Sonia Ricotti

“Expectation is the root of all heartache.” – William Shakespeare

“When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life, reminding me that I can only have peace of mind when I forgive rather than judge.” – Gerald Jampolsky

“Chasing after the world brings chaos. Allowing it all to come to me, brings peace.” – Zen Gatha

“Inner peace begins the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.” – Pema Chodron

“If you want peace, stop fighting. If you want peace of mind, stop fighting with your thoughts.” – Peter McWilliams

“Just slow down. Slow down your speech. Slow down your breathing. Slow down your walking. Slow down your eating. And let this slower, steadier pace perfume your mind. Just slow down.” – Doko

“Any sense of privilege that we have to possess something seems to vanish once we are actually able to possess it. Therefore, in how many cases would it better ‘not’ to possess something?” – Craig D. Lounsbrough

“You see things; you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say ‘Why not?” – George Bernard Shaw

“Our most intense joy comes not from personal feats, but from helping other persons achieve their goals. We become suppler human beings when we find true joy in witnessing other people’s successes and unabashedly share in their joyful accomplishments.” – Kilroy J. Oldster

“‎Though nobody can go back and make a new beginning… Anyone can start over and make a new ending.” – Chico Xavier

“The ideas, ideals, ideologies that we hold are learned, taught or sometimes indoctrinated. Some are temporary ….some linger indefinitely. Some are found along our path; adopted through desire, desperation, nativity, through hurt, epiphany or realized under a tree. But do not hate the person ….instead shift through loving action and transform our deeds.” – Rasheed Ogunlaru

“It is beautiful to express love and even more beautiful to feel it.” – Dejan Stojanovic

“Your suffering needs to be respected. Don’t try to ignore the hurt, because it is real. Just let the hurt soften you instead of hardening you. Let the hurt open you instead of closing you. Let the hurt send you looking for those who will accept you instead of hiding from those who reject you.” – Bryant McGill

“Peace is its own reward.” – Mahatma Gandhi
