Symptoms of Inner Peace

Symptoms of Inner Peace

Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace. The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to inner peace and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions. This could pose a serious threat to what has, up to now, been a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world.

Some signs and symptoms of inner peace:

A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.

An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment.

A loss of interest in judging other people.

A loss of interest in judging self.

A loss of interest in interpreting the actions of others.

A loss of interest in conflict.

A loss of the ability to worry. (This is a very serious symptom.)

Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

Contented feelings of connectedness with others and nature.

Frequent attacks of smiling.

An increasing tendency to let things happen rather than make them happen.

An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others as well as the

uncontrollable urge to extend it.

WARNING: If you have some or all of the above symptoms, please be advised that your condition of inner peace may be so far advanced as to not be curable. If you are exposed to anyone exhibiting any of these symptoms, remain exposed only at your own risk.

Hello, Angela,
I did receive your request, but I could not respond right away, and, then, when I went to look for it, I couldn't find it. I am glad to see you posted.

One correction, though. If you and your readers will visit my website, for reprint inf, you will also find a poster and some background on SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE. The earthlink email address is only working some of the time and so will be phased out. The website is there to stay and the contact info will always be current.

Thank you for being an agent of the worldwide inner peace pandemic!

Thanks Saskia! I guess I was so eager to get it posted as I love this! I found a copy posted on the Clinical Nurse Specialist's office.
