Peace Begins With Me

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.”

-Dalai Lama

The spiritual leader Dalai Lama is known around the world for his guidance and wisdom. And today’s quote from him is no different. We as a society long for peace in the world where there is no more fighting and no more bloodshed. What he points out is that in order for us to have that outer peace we must first find inner peace within ourselves. This by no means is an easy task and takes years of practice and patience. Realizing that you can only control yourself and not outside factors is one of of the hardest things to recognize, let alone actually do. Things like meditation, reading and exercise can help you to find that inner peace. Remember life is what you make of it and you can make it into whatever it is you wish it to be. Peace can on occur when we start with ourselves.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards defining/refining your own moral compass?
