Finding Serenity

This is lesson 10 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view. Each of the 48 lessons includes a prayer or meditation.

What is serenity? Daily activities, by their very nature of action, are not serene. We can try, but it is physically impossible to make our actions serene.

What we can make serene is our mental attitude while we are being busy and active.

Serenity is an inner state of being and does not come from another person - we cannot get serenity from our partner or from a relationship.

Serenity in the present comes from remembering that in the past every problem had a resolve. And, that therefore, every dilemma of the present moment and all future moments will have a resolve, also.

If we truly keep this idea in mind we need not stray too far before recapturing our serenity.

Finding Serenity Prayer

"Lord, may I know
That serenity is an
Inner state of contentment
That a calm interior, even with a busy exterior
Can be regained, maintained
By remembering that today’s problems
And all future problems
Will eventually be resolved
And made right."
