Calm

Interestingly, my dictionary defines calm as the absence of violence, nervousness, anger and similar emotions. My dictionary defines “absence” as nonexistence.

For me, this invites the inquiry, “What is calm?”
Not “What is calm?” as in “How is calm defined?”
“What is calm?” as in “Is the mind calm?” or “Is awareness calm?”

In order to be calm, I must abide as That which is calm, as That where violence, nervousness, anger and similar motions are naturally nonexistent.

Abiding as That is calm.
