to be at peace with myself

I want first of all to be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want, in fact – to borrow from the language of the saints – to live “in grace” as much of the time as possible. By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony.

– Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Yet another quote I found on the beautiful A First Sip.  I highly recommend it.  I also highly recommend Gift from the Sea, Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s glorious book that reveals itself further to me each time I read it.
