Maintaining A Sense of Serenity & Calmness
In the 26th verse of the Tao Te Ching
, you're being advised to maintain
a sense of serenity regardless of what you may see taking place around
you. Moreover, you're being told that the true master knows that the
ability to stay calm is always located within. From this perspective,
there's no need to assign responsibility to others for how you feel.
Even though you may life in a world where blame and faultfinding are endemic, you will own your feelings and actions. You will know that circumstances don't determine your state of mind, for that power rests with you. When you maintain a peaceful inner posture, even in the midst of chaos, you change your life.
The wisdom of this verse of the Tao Te Ching prompts you to know that you have a choice. Do you want to be in a state of confusion or to have a tranquil inner landscape? It's up to you! Armed with this insight, the Tao master doesn't allow an external event to be a disturbance.
Lao-tzu tells you that assigning blame for your lack of calmness will never bring you to the state of being that you're striving to attain. Self-mastery only blossoms when you practice being aware of, and responsible for, what you're feeling.
This particular part of the Tao Te Ching is one that you'll probably want to immerse yourself in repeatedly. After all, what could be better than the freedom of going through life without feeling that people and circumstances control you without your permission?- Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life by Dr. Wayne DyerNEW TOOL:
