Finding Peace of Mind

By Val Boyko • December 14th, 2011

The Mother Whisperers journey is to find peace of mind in your Mother Daughter relationship. We’ve talked about tips and strategies and the changes that daughters and mothers can bring about. The ultimate goal is to find your own peace of mind.

open hand letting goThis is my favorite quote from Dr Thynn Thynn about inner peace that I want to share with you:

“Peace is a natural mind-state in every one of us. Peace has been there since the day we were born and is going to be there until the day we die.It is our greatest gift; so why do we think we have no peace of mind?

Experiencing peace is like looking at our hands. Usually we see only the fingers – not the spaces in between them. In a similar manner, when we look at the mind, we are aware of the active states, such as our running thoughts and the one thousand and one feelings that are associated with them, but we tend  to overlook the intervals of peace between them.”

When we come to realize that peace of mind is already within us, our journey changes from searching for it, to one of letting go and being present  in order for it to be recognized.

I love the idea of shedding rather than striving for. It doesn’t seem so unattainable … although it can be hard for those of us who feel a need to always be in control… That’s a whole other post!
