Serenity…What The Hell Is That?



Serenity is a state of complete peacefulness where the mind is calm and unaffected by the external environment. This higher spiritual echelon, or inner peace, is accompanied by a sense of contentment and absolute bliss. Human beings are distinct from all other life forms on earth due to our intelligence, consciousness and the ability to change our environment. The conscious mind perceives the external world and feels varying emotions based on experiences and perceptions.

These feelings, emotions, and sentiments, in turn, determine our inner equilibrium or “inner self.” Consciousness, which stems from internalization of social values and morals, also plays a major role in directing the inner self. Most of the time, the inner life or equilibrium of the human mind is in a disturbed state. The mind is never really at peace, and chaos reigns supreme due to anger, shame, feelings of guilt, and sadness. The human mind strives to achieve a proper balance or equilibrium. The eternal quest for the ultimate goal—Peaceful Bliss—proceeds in many directions.


Some seek solace in various forms of addiction, others by passionately submerging themselves in work or pleasures. These paths, however, never fully satiate the true desire for peace or tranquility. Serenity, or peace, is only achieved by striving for inner peace first. The most important step in this direction is to recognize the inner child of your mind. The second step is freeing that inner child from all forms of abuse and then loving it unconditionally, as you would a child.


Self-love is the key to Serenity. Self-love does not require us to be directed by our inner child. We should take control as a conscious being and love ourselves, yet not be dictated by it. Some find serenity in nature; for others, serenity can be found in visiting with family and friends. True serenity is achieved by empowering the inner self and allowing it to reflect into the external world.

Sending You Love And Serenity!
