It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of all those things, and still remain calm in your heart.
Too often we think that we have to make our environment peaceful if we are to find inner peace.
This, of course, can be very difficult to do, especially if we work and have a family. And we are fooling ourselves if we think we have complete control over our environment. No, this is not the way to find peace. True peace comes from within.
When we know how to access that peace, it really doesn’t matter what is going on around us, whether our environment is noisy and chaotic.
Real peace starts inside of us, and eventually works its way into our environment. When you find this peace, nothing and no-one can ever take it away from you.
