True Inner Peace

"Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances." ~ Mahatma Gandhi

As I reflected on this quote by Gandhi, I thought about how most people are really affected by outside circumstances; and if they are affected by their circumstances, then how can they experience real inner peace?

We must stop allowing the outside to affect our insides. True peace comes from within, not from outside of you. If you have to look for peace outside of yourself, then it isn’t true peace. And how long will that kind of peace last?

Just for today, look within for your real peace and that peace will radiate to your outside world.
