Within

Peace comes from within…do not seek it from without.

I supposed there are many ways to read that. One might say that it’s a really complicated way of telling yourself to be content with who you are. That’s not awful advice…it just misses the mark a bit. To be happy with who you are first requires that you know who you are.

That…is much nearer the mark. Who determines who you are? Your job description? An evaluation? A rank? Political stance? Possibly…unless those are things people label you.

Who you are is up to you to decide. How you identify yourself is up to you. How you label yourself is what matters. And all of those things come from within…from a search through your thoughts…your emotions…your experiences…

You have to find the answers to that question yourself…and not just passively accept what the world tells you about you.
