Anyone Can Find Inner Peace
The path to finding inner peace is as simple or difficult as one makes it. It can be as simple as “letting go” and taking a rest in nature. The simple answer is acceptance of the self, and always being present in the moment. Anyone can find inner peace if they are able to quiet their mind and let go of what they cannot control. Trusting in your inner self and in the path you are on is the biggest first step. Incidentally, there is no counting the number of paths one could take to get to inner peace.

It’s Important To Find A Belief That Matches To Your Natural Self
Numerous belief systems and practices exist that may guide one to inner peace and find the answers they are looking for. It’s important to find a belief that matches to your natural self. Some faiths choose to keep asking questions while others remind us that many questions don’t have answers at all. Acceptance of these questions, along with their answers or lack thereof, is believed by many to be the most direct path to inner peace. Here are some simple steps to acceptance that Taoism uses to guide people to inner peace:
1. The past is the past. It is long gone and not deserving of scrutiny in the present.
2. The future has not yet arrived, and cannot be enriched by dwelling on what may come to be.
3. You are here now, drifting from moment to moment, and it is important to be present in each step of the dance between present “now” and the next present “now”. By embracing the relevance of “now”, you can learn to rid yourself of past failures, disappointments, and other pains, while letting go of the worries of what the future may hold.
By accepting the presence of “now”, you can let go enough to see yourself and the current moment clearly. Through this door is inner peace.
