Peace, Be Still
World peace must develop from inner peace.
— Dalai Lama XIV

Being rooted in truth is being rooted in peace. This peace
does not come from anything outside of us. It is something
that is innate to us. We don’t have to go looking for it. It just
is. Well, until it’s not.
And when we find that it is not, it’s because we have forgotten
who we are. With all the busyness of life, remaining peaceful
can be challenging. When this happens, people go searching for
the things they think will make them happy and bring peace.
They may go searching for the car, house, relationship, etc.,
they think is the source of peace. Usually, when they find these
things, they also find that the peace they were looking for is still
nowhere in sight.
Peace will never be found on the outside. Peace will always be
found within. Sometimes, we need to stop our seeking and be still
so that we can know.

in the midst of you.” This is important because the word midst
means middle, center, core, heart; therefore, the line could be
written as, “Be still and know that the Lord thy God is in the heart

a breath. Be still. Know that peace is at the very heart of your
I am the peace of God. I genuinely express peace in all of my daily
