It has been very quiet around here over the last three days. For the first time, since all this began, I feel very calm. It’s not the calm before the storm, because there is no storm in sight. It’s more like an inner peace. It feels like my spirit has left my body and has taken along with it all the worry, negativity, uncertainty and pain, which have weighed me down over the last several months. Now, after all this time, only emptiness remains.
I feel much lighter, as though all I’ve been carrying with me has been lifted. As far as my eyes can see, my road is straight. The distance is long, but there are no obstacles in my way. I can walk more freely now. My steps are no longer wobbly. They are steadier. I may not know where I’m headed, but there’s no doubt in my mind, that I will eventually get there.
I have never experienced this feeling before. I couldn’t figure out what all this meant, so I decided to look up the meaning of “inner peace” and this is what I found…
Inner peace refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of discord or stress. Being “at peace” is considered by many to be healthy and the opposite of being stressed or anxious.
Even though I may not have an answer as to why I feel this way, its a good feeling, and one I hope that lasts for as long as it can.
