Peace of Mind

Do not confuse peace of mind with spaced-out insensitivity. A truly peaceful mind is very sensitive, very aware. – Tenzin Gyatso, The 14th Dalai Lama

When you’ve seen beyond yourself, then you may find, peace of mind is waiting there. – George Harrison

For peace of mind, resign as general manager of the universe – Larry Eisenberg

It’s been almost four weeks now since I left my job. I’ve been on vacation (holiday in European terms) since then with two to four more weeks to go. For the first time in many years, I have become very relaxed and even more content than I usually am.

Is it just because I’m on vacation? I suspect not. Of course that helps but I think what is going on is that I’m only doing what I want to do at every moment. This is a different way of life for me because typically I’m  was also doing things that I had to do or was “forced” to do like work and etc.

I’m learning to let life flow freely and let it carry me where I want to go. I’m beginning to understand this is the way it should always be. My next goal after getting used to this way of living is to integrate this philosophy into work/career.

Until then, I’m experiencing more and more moments where I’m at peace. As I enjoy these times immensely, I’m striving to experience peace of my mind as a continual moment.

Have a great day!
