Black Belt in Inner Peace contains short journal entries I have kept and continue to add to, as I go for a black belt in inner peace by endeavoring to move through each busy and sometimes stressful day with greater grace and ease.
Number 4: Light joy and peace
I have been practicing stopping for 5 minutes every hour to embrace the idea that there is a light shining within me that radiates with joy and peace. I’ll admit I was annoyed by the interruption a couple of times when the reminder bell rang at the top of each hour, but even then I managed to embrace the idea long enough to experience, at very least, an improvement in my mood. I’ve been doing this simple exercise now for 8 straight hours and my mind is lighter, more creative, and happier, enabling me to cruise through my work.
