Where do true wisdom, courage, peace and love really come from? Can we attain them on our own merit?
The Serenity Prayer, a very famous prayer, can help us on this part of our journey toward fully realized peace and love in our lives by offering us words of wisdom in the request it makes and who it makes that request to.
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.”
On the journey to discover our true self, to discover true wisdom and true peace of mind, we must connect with the Divine. We must enter into a meaningful relationship with our God within. We must go deep.
Today’s busy world aspires to keep us “self” fulfilled where we actually need to become God fulfilled. Instead of “me” centered we need to become God centered. This is when we truly become the authentic peace and love, the true words of wisdom and the courage that we need not only to live out our true self but also to be what the world needs us to be.
Mother Teresa said, “There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.” Meditation and contemplation are acts of continual surrender that can connect us to the true God within.
