Calmness (n): The state of quality of being free from agitation or strong emotion. 

James Allen said it beautifully in his quote from, As a Man Thinketh:

“Calmness of mind is one the beautiful jewels of wisdom. It is the result of long and patient effort in self-control. Its presence is an indication of ripened experience, and of a more than ordinary knowledge of the laws and operations of thought.”

Calmness is a state of being that I believe we should obtain or rather understand. When we are at peace, when we are calm, we allow ourselves to be open. We allow ourselves to be receptive, at ease, and in control of how we feel. Calmness is an attribute the seekers yearn for. Throughout our daily lives, we are dealt with chaos and distractions, and acquiring the personal trait of tranquility is a top priority. When we tap into this feeling of being calm, we are clear, there is clarity within the mind, and freshness of ideas. We let the disturbances go the wayside, the rushing waves within our mind cease to exist and stillness is born. 

The soul of our beings is forever alive, seeking to express more of itself and show its true self. When it is calm, its magnitude increases. The functionality of our mind and soul is enhanced and we are digging deeper into what the mystics, monks, and people alike call super consciousness. 

I look at Calmness as a realm where I can think, prosper, and listen to my true self. We all can get caught up into societies demands at times, but when we embark and embrace the process of learning about ourselves-about what it means to be mentally aware and study how to increase our ability to reach a place of “calmness” we begin to put ourselves in the driver seat of life. When we look inward, we shall be met with an answer and one that proves to be correct. 

So whether you are in business, education, currently a student, or any other field know that calmness is a worthy state of being that can help you mentally, socially, or emotionally. 

Some quick tips to use:

  1.  Meditation- find a few books that teach mediation and/or find someone or some place to help develop your experience.
  2. Yoga- Once again find a book that teaches yoga and while learning find a studio or mentor to help guide you through the yoga path.
  3. Go to seminar that teaches of the concepts of Calmness or mental healing.
