By surrendering everything to God.
If we hold on to things then he’ll let us take the wheel, but if you surrender everything to God then everything else will fall into place.
This goes for everything else in life.

Death & the afer-life, that is if one believes in it in the first place.

true tranquility cannot be sought only received

In simple words (from a song in “The Sound of Music,” actually), “Climb every mountain, ford every stream. Follow every rainbow, til you find your dream.” If you pursue your dreams and your passions and you do not sell yourself short, always trying, never giving up…and most importantly, remembering that you will never know EVERYTHING, then I think many will find tranquility and joy when they have reached the end of their own rainbow.

In the book of Galatians chapter 5 we read about the works of the flesh and the fruit of the Spirit. The Bible lists what the works of the flesh are and what the fruit of the Spirit are. Joy and peace forms a part of the fruit of the Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is what replaces the works of the flesh when we surrender our lives to Jesus Christ and allow His Spirit to mould our hearts and lives. As we continue to surrender our lives to Him each day then in time you’ll discover that hate is being replaced with love and selfishess by kindness and unhappiness by joy and soon you’ll see that even when the whole world is falling apart around you, you’ll still have joy in your heart. Joy is a gift, given to anyone who chooses Jesus as Lord and Saviour. Any joy short of this is only superficial and doesn’t last. I could talk alot more about this if I had time!!!

Find yourself first.

You shouldn’t have to look for it, it is inside you always.

I’m starting to find tranquility by taking all the negative people out of my life and trying to live life to the fullest. Try finding the positive in your life, whether it be in your family or friends or your job, etc. I try to remember that life is too short and that we have to live today like there is no tomorrow. Good luck!
