State of inner tranquility, harmony, and composure. It  stems from a deep sense of ease within oneself, undisturbed by external  circumstances. Calmness is not to be confused with passivity or  indifference. Rather, it provides a foundation for accessing wisdom and  acting from clarity. The calm person can experience joy and laughter as  well as determination and intensity when appropriate. Calmness allows  one to live intuitively and purposefully. It is an essential quality for  a fulfilling life.
