“Upside Down – Outrageous Ridiculous Calmness” By: Daphne Knox McClain

When everything and everyone around you seem to have gone turbulent and nothing or no one makes sense…remain calm.

There are moments in life when it will become necessary to search for peace. Peace is a gift that you give to yourself. It may be found in a cloudy day, a sunshiny day or even a rainy day. There is no certain place to find peace…Peace comes from within.

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” (John 14:27 KJV)

You may be sitting in the middle of a storm of confusion and yet able to discover peace. You may be dealing with the chaos of death and destruction and yet approached by peace. You may have just been given a serious medical diagnosis, living with a debilitating condition or facing the possibility of living with an illness for which there is no cure and suddenly hear the voice of peace.

When I feel as though I have loss my sense of peace…I remember to go deep within my core and ironically, Peace finds me. I close my eyes. I calm my thoughts. I relax my nerves. I focus on my blessings. Seeking peace is an act of self-discipline, mental-training and self-correction.

Upon deciding to open my eyes, I have learned to seek the images of good and not the images of evil; to see the loveliness of nature, animals and much to my surprise… even insects. What I do not do is focus on the ugly aspects of life, which we are all bombarded with every single minute of every single day. When ugliness rears its annoying head…look away. When fear comes rushing towards the fore-front…willingly dive into calm.

My views on the importance of calmness in one’s life may seem upside down and ridiculously outrageous but choose a day to enact calm into your awareness and into your life circumstances and be prepared to be flooded by a sense of calm in the midst of lunacy!
