Peace - Calm - Serene - Tranquil

When I started with A Course In Miracles in 1990 and read that the goal was peace, I thought, how boring, I want passion! Years later I can't thing of anything I'd like more than simple peace. Consider the synonyms: calm, serene, and tranquil. Consider the shadow synonyms as well: chaos, discord, distress, agitation, and tumult (ouch!). In 12 Step Recovery, when we fall back into our disease we call it a "slip." I recently heard a slip is when "Serenity loses it's priority." It reminded me how important serenity really is. In fact, it is a test because if I have lost serenity, It's because I am back in disease and chaos is in charge. Time to honor my need for peace, serenity, calm, and tranquility and get back to God.
