Inner peace - 2

Inner peace is not something that's thrown in from the outside.
It's not other people who give it to you.
You have to enable yourself to let go of what prevents you to get in contact with it.

Realising that you're not the centre of the world can be very healing.
There's no need to expect a lot from other people, because there's no need for them to live up to your expectations. They have to live their own path, they have to follow their own pace of development.
Ofcourse you can assist and support them. Without criticism. With care and compassion.
But they need to stay true to their own being, just like you have to stay true to yourself.

Inner peace can be reached by leaving behind all criticism and expectations. Not only those with regards to others, but also in relation with yourself.
