Staying centered

centered

Some days when I am feeling upbeat and everything else seem to be falling in place. I thought this will last. Life is good this way. Then something happens and sends my dream of an ideal life crashing down hard – grabbing my hope and faith along with it.

Then I realized ups and downs are what makes life – LIFE. The downs are there to strengthen and test my faith. Instead of wishing that there are always good times, I realized the importance of having a calm and grounded center within me. A place of refuge of sorts. Whatever comes, I should be able to stay calm and centered. Easier said than done but daily meditation practice has been helping me in remaining calm amidst tribulation. I am learning to accept that the external circumstances are just that – external – it has no bearing on my inner peace. Like a mountain standing strong and unshaken  amidst the storm.
