Inner peace

Today, Beliefnet has a series of affirmations about cultivating inner peace. Here's one of them:
Somewhere deep inside of us, there is a place that is quiet no matter what is going on. We can’t always reach this place, but it is there. In painful times or fearful times, it helps to know it is there and we can try to reach it. Sitting quietly, being with our breath, we can stop the chattering of our mind and find this place, even if it is only for a moment.

  1. Ellie, This is exactly the advice my father gave me when I was very young. He told me to forgive everyone everything and to hate no one. He said that hate, spite and malice do nothing to the person toward whom they are directed, but will eat up the person who holds them from the inside out.
