There is no greater wealth in this world than peace of mind.

Author Unknown

April 29th - peace be with you

 Peace of mind is the greatest wealth there is.  Money is not the greatest wealth there is.  You can have all the money  in the world, but if you don’t have peace you are not wealthy.

Denice Carney

Money can buy everything but not peace of mind which depends on your thoughts and love for yourself.  Peace means to be close to God and its the search of every soul, but the thing is how much you listen to what is near to your soul.

Peace is always available, and like any desirable state of mind, it requires effort, even if that effort means choosing to be still.

There are countless things we can do to create peace of mind,  You could take a walk with the sole intention of photographing beautiful things that make you feel at peace, like a tree with colorful autumn leaves, or a walk along a beach, focusing on the sand between your toes and the sound of the crashing waves.

Some find peace when they declutter parts of their home, creating a more peaceful space.

Others simply slow down and take a deep breath or two or three.  Nothing that costs any money will give you peace.  You have to find it in yourself.  Sit in nature , and let yourself simply be. The important thing is that we do at least one thing every day to create mental stillness.  Let your mind rest and be at peace.

Nothing can disturb your peace of mind unless you allow it to.

Roy T. Bennett

I'm at peace when I'm content with who I am and what I have.

Great thoughts about peace, Ma! I like the peace that God gives us too that transcends understanding, even in the midst of hard troubling times!

I like what you say and it is true - and only God - for me - can give me peace of mind!

A few images that jumped in my brain -- wee (zen) sandboxes designed to sit on executives' desktops … immersion pods … even electronic sound machines. All making someone very wealthy at the expense of others' stress.
These are all great ideas you've cited. In the end, we have to discover what avenue works best for our own peace of mind. Priceless!

Our peace of mind comes from cooperation, ours with his will. It is such a blessing when we can just accept that Peace of Mind. If we are not careful some days, we miss it altogether. But thank goodness, mostly he gives us another day to et it right.
Love yo lady,
