Finding Peace

“We are all on a journey to mastering our inner peace.” ~ Raheem DeVaughn

Mastering our inner peace is not an easy thing. It is also not something that we do, and then move on. It is a never ending process. I have certainly come to realize that these past few weeks.

I have had a strong Internet presence for a long time now, as have most of my friends. Speaking for myself, this works well. I have met many intelligent, creative, gracious people online. As with all things, friendships evolve. In some cases, they devolve.

I have had to unfriend some people, and block others recently. This is Internet speak for standing back, for creating a safe distance between myself and those that are becoming toxic to me. We all have our own way of perceiving the world around us, and expressing our opinion(s) about it. This can be done in a gracious, civil manner, or it can be all out war. I try to avoid the “all out war” scenario whenever possible.

Like many others, I am not looking forward to our next election. On a day to day basis, I am appalled at how this country is conducting itself. I am trying to sit on my hands, and not respond to the political rhetoric that I am seeing.

May we all have the strength to find our inner peace.
