Spiritual teacher, Eckhart Tolle, was answering a question posed to him regarding inner peace in one of his talks. The person argued that they could not possibly cultivate inner peace when there are so many atrocities in the world. Eckhart’s response was a great reminder for me. He said if you wait until there are no troubles in the world to make your inner peace a priority, it will never happen. Furthermore, the only way to address the problems of the world is by cultivating inner peace. The more people who do so, the healthier society gets.
Peace is, at first, an inside job. From there we can let it grow.
May you be inspired!
