When disturbing events rock my world, I return to my reservoir of peace.
When disturbing events rock the world of everyone I know, they return to their reservoirs of peace.
When disturbing events rock the world of everyone I don’t even know, all over the planet, they return to their reservoirs of peace.
A peace reservoir consists of all the thoughts and actions you perform to keep yourself calm.
They can grow naturally when you are happy.
They can be cultivated when you find yourself in a disturbing situation, by turning within to listen for a moment of calm.
Whatever situation arises, there is always a place of peace.
Consistently returning to listen within, builds up a collection of peaceful moments and peaceful feelings.
Even though you may feel pulled in a direction of fear or outrage, you can still return to your collection of peaceful moments and add to it.
I am starting a new practice where I fill myself up with peace and inspiration before I look at the day’s news, so that I already have a foundation for my day.
Then, as I read the news stories and take action where I can, I know that I am helping contribute to the peace and solutions that are possible.
This allows me to continue to prosper by making intelligent decisions instead of getting pulled off course by reaction to them.
