Any morning you wake is a good morning to be alive. There's a moment when you realize everything will be alright no matter what you have to do to succeed. That moment usually comes every morning as you drift between sleep and wake as the alarm comes crashing in.
In Buddhist practice shanti, simply meaning "peace", primarily means inner rather than outer peace. Through practice it’s possible to cultivate a still mind even in surroundings that are anything but tranquil.
