Symptoms of Inner Peace

New Page -- 6 August 2003

Updated -- 11 August 2004

Again -- 1 May 2006

And yet again -- 15 October 2009

The symptoms of inner peace [1] are:

    Contented feelings of connectedness with God and others,

    A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than from fears based on past experience (i.e. paradigms and/or old hierarchy of values),

    An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment,

    An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment -- even when the moment is slightly repetitive,

    A loss of interest in judging self,

    A loss of interest in conflict,

    A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others,

    A loss of interest in all those back taxes you owe,

    A loss of ability to worry -- particularly about income taxes,

    Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation,

    Frequent attacks of smiling through the eyes of the heart,

    Increasing susceptibility to love extended by others as well as the uncontrollable urge to extend love -- as in philandering,

    An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen, and

    An unaccountable urge to laugh out loud (and not turn to observe the expressions on the faces of your co-workers).


One external link which specifically requested inclusion within this page is www.trueawakening.org. One its many attributes is an unaccountable desire to discover links to "Gulliver" and "Laputa". It has also been said that "by virtue of the resources and unlearning offered by the Supreme Exalted Chancellor and staff of the Foundation for World Awakening, many people find [the above] symptoms rapidly accumulating. One might suspect that an additional indicator of inner peace is the ability to smile at: "the Supreme Exalted..."


Then there's the "Message from Forever" (Bee Lake, in Marlo Morgan's Mutant Message from Forever):

"You are a spiritual being here on earth having a human experience. You elected to come. It was not an accident nor by chance that you were born of the two people who are your biological parents. You were aware of who they were, of the circumstances under which you were conceived, and the inherent genetic pattern of both."

"You are a spiritual being evolving into enlightenment. Earth is a classroom in which lessons and demonstrations are available. It is a unique planet with unique life-forms."

The ten "thou shalt" rules for all humans include:

You should express your individual creativity. [Expressive in any field!]

Realize that you are accountable. [No scapegoatology or woundology!]

Before birth you agreed to help others. [No man is an island; no woman a bay.]

Mature emotionally. [See, e.g. Emotional Wisdom]

Entertain. [Be a comedian even when the audience is too scared to laugh.]

Be a steward of your energy. [Optimism is often less energy intensive than pessimism, by the way.]

Indulge in Music. [Please note that rests and arpeggios are all essential.]

Strive to achieve wisdom. [A nice route is via awe.]

Learn self-discipline. [Don't make me come to your place!]

Observe without judging. [Forget my last comment.]

You just never know where you're going to find peace, not to mention wisdom. Or awe. Or better yet, humor (remember number five above).
