Your inner peace is a function of what is going on inside of you and is independent of others behaviors, words or emotional reactions. If I’m clear that I’m whole, complete and grounded in my body, then how can someone truly interfere with my inner peace?
Remember three things: In any situation, you can always make a “request,” leave the situation or embrace “what is.”
1. Make a request by asking the child to lower his voice or play at the other end of the pool.
2. Leave the pool and find a quiet room in my home (maybe even with noise-canceling
3. Or accept the “sounds of summer” and allow the noises to melt into the overall experience. I recognize inner peace through my breath and simply delight in all that is.
Remember, inner peace disappears with “resistance” not reprimands or criticism.
