Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful. So, our goal in any situation should be inner peace. Instead of asking for a better job, or a better spouse, or better finances, try the prayer below:
“Dear God, My desire, my priority is inner peace. I want the experience of love. I don’t know what will bring that to me. I leave the results of this situation in your hands. I trust your will. May your will be done. – Amen”T
To prepare yourself for inner peace in your life, practice this 10 minute meditation each day. Simply sit comfortably with your eyes closed and repeat:
- Inner peace begins with me.
- Outer peace begins with me.
- World peace begins with me.
