As the music played in the background, one individual described it as sad. Another person, experiencing a different emotion, asked about a correlation between peace and sadness. I see a connection between these emotions because we can have peace of mind, including an absence of nagging worries, and also feel sadness. Dr. Carl Jung wrote that “even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word 'happy' would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.” “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7).
