How do you attain inner peace, you ask? You stop looking. You already have it within you. You will not find it looking high and low, near and far. Look within. If it is not within you, you will never find it. What is within must be cultivated. ~God~
To find the inner peace God refers to requires entering into the silence where the ego’s demands and desires fall away. Ego would have you believe that inner peace depends on outer circumstances when, as God suggests, it depends on what is within. Practicing meditation is one way to cultivate the tender seedling of peace. As the seed grows and blooms the condition of inner peace, rather than being the exception, becomes the norm.
