Serenity is the simple experience of absolute calm.  And yet the dictionary meanings are far more expansive.  From a quality known as regal, to a demeanor called dignity, to the visual expanse of light, ocean, and sky, to “a state free of storms or change” — all these words define serenity.

For most of us, serenity is a feeling: “peace that surpasses understanding.”  Serenity comes from within our hearts, from the voice of our soul. *

Sometimes in the stress of  life and the holidays, we lose touch.  We are too busy doing, going, planning, running.

As with serenity, love comes to us in quiet moments.  Give yourself the gift of listening.

Loving others: “I had found a kind of serenity, a new maturity…I didn’t feel better or stronger than anyone else but it seemed no longer important whether or not everyone loved me or not — more important now was for me to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around; living becomes the act of giving. Beverly Sills quotes

Loving ourselves: I have learned to like myself for the first time and to have some serenity. Keith Miller

Loving our earth:  Journey with me to a true commitment to our environment. Journey with me to the serenity of leaving to our children a planet in equilibrium. Paul Tsongas
