Symptoms of Inner Peace

By Saskia Davis, ©1984

Via the Flylady.
1. Tendency to think and act spontaneously, rather than from fears based on past experiences.

2. An unmistakeable ability to enjoy each moment.

3. Loss of interest in judging self.

4. Loss of interest in judging others.

5. Loss of interest in conflict and one-upmanship.

6. Loss of interest in interpreting actions of worry.

7. Loss of ability to worry (This is a SERIOUS symptom!).

8. Frequent, overwhelming episodes of appreciation.

9. Feelings of contentment and connectedness with others and with Nature.

10. Frequent attacks of smiling.

11. Increased susceptibility to love and to "passing it forward."

12. Increased tendency to let things happen rather than make things happen.

NOTE: If you have all or even most of the above symptoms, your condition of Inner Peace may be so far advanced as to be untreatable!

It's so nice to see folks appreciating SYMPTOMS OF INNER PEACE. I am writing to introduce myself as author and to invite you and your readers to my website, . There you can find the complete text from which the list you have posted was taken (and slightly revised) as well as a poster and a little more info.

Also, I would very much appreciate it if you would add my name as author & ©1984 to your post so that when others re-post, I am along for the ride.

If you would email me to let me know when it is done at, I would like to add it to my "library." Thanks greatly.
Thanks for helping to spread the pandemic!
