We all want that for the world right? We want everybody and everything to be in a state of peaceful alignment.
Truth is, so long as there are those who have and those who feel they do not have, there will always be a sense of war.

The more I love life, the more I recognise that finding this alignment within is paramount to living a good life.
A peaceful mind is one filled with clarity, optimism and confidence. To be clear, being peaceful doesn’t mean you don’t face any adversity, or that your life is problem free but rather, it means that you don’t allow these things to disturb your inner world.
Yes, it’s possible to be without worry, doubt or fear even in the middle of your greatest personal storm. It’s possible to be peaceful even when everything around you is shaky and uncertain.
