The Essential Way - Calmness
Calmness is a rare quality in human life. It is the poise of a great nature, in harmony with itself and its ideals. It is the atmosphere of a life self-reliant and self-controlled. Calmness is singleness of purpose, absolute confidence, and conscious power. With calmness any situation or crisis can be addressed.
Calmness is the mental state of peace, the mind being free from agitation or disturbance. It is a state of serenity, tranquility, and peace. Calmness can most easily occur during a state of relaxation, but to retain calmness, is to uncover it during the times of agitation and retain your way of being. Calmness is the Foundation. It is the beginning where all the other elements become attainable.
No one lives a life more fully, more intensely and more consciously than the person who is living a life with the foundation of calmness.
