The results of anxiety are felt in our inner worlds. In order to be free from anxiety in our inner life we must think in nonanxious ways. Perhaps the greatest place we can arrive at as human beings is what I call effortless perfection or inner serenity.
The Japanese culture calls this experience of total inner peace Shibumi. It is difficult to write about this state of serenity because it is a unique experience for every individual. The essence of achieving this kind of inner perfection lies in a view of the world as a perfect place. It means thinking in terms of harmony, peace, love, and perfection, rather than looking at the world as a hostile, ugly, hateful place. Innerperfection involves making peace with oneself, vowing to avoid fighting life, and instead joining with the natural forces of our universe and enjoying each moment as a miracle.

Shibui (渋い) (adjective), shibumi (渋み) (noun), or shibusa (渋さ) (noun)are Japanese words which refer to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty. Like other Japanese aesthetic terms, such as iki and wabi-sabi, shibui can apply to a wide variety of subjects, not just art or fashion.From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibui
