Achieving inner tranquility

“In our hectic lives the pathway to the enchanted world of peace and tranquility often eludes us. Perhaps we try too hard – we seek it here, we seek it there, and, our lives become even less tranquil than before. It is often said that tranquility lies in simple things – in reading a book, listening to a particular piece of music, walking through a gallery or visiting a park. When life is stressful, just close your eyes and shut out the world for a few moments and allow yourself to recreate those tranquil moments.”

This is 1000 paths to tranquility, by David Baird. Following I will include the paths that I feel the most connected to and I hope you will embrace their meaning and find your tranquility as well. If not, then maybe you may need to get the book and look through all of the 1000 paths. Enjoy !
