Calm is a state of mind not easy for many, especially in these times of confusion and chaos.
To put things in perspective in spite of uncertainty calls for a whole lot of balance in the way we sense whatever we are witnessing.
To be calm as a way of being we need to envision beyond our limited self. When we put our problems in the larger canvas of life we begin to see our niggling problems differently. In fact, many of them disappear for we cannot justify their existence ourselves in the larger scheme of things. We let them go.
To soothe ourselves into a space of calm we will need to change our demands on ourselves for a start. This need for perfection that exceeds the normal has to be sorted as it can drain us and our resources in trying to match up so much that it puts us in a constant state of tension. Calm is about cultivating an attitude of forgiveness not only others but for oneself. So best is to excuse oneself from overt perfectionism.
Ease the self
To a state of calm
Allow thoughts to settle
Like the dust in the wind.
All fall in place in time.
Choose calm to beat chaos.
