Speak of inner peace, it is something that we all need in order to be and stay healthy. Inner peace allows you to be strong, motivated, loving, and encouraging, not only to yourself, but to others as well.
To achieve inner peace, you don’t have to belong to a certain faith or religion, it simply means you are in a state of mind where you can relaxed and comfortable with your world. But for some people, belong to a certain faith or religion are important in the journey to reach to their inner peace.
When you achieve inner peace, you do not respond with stress or fear to what shows up in your life; rather, your response is an inner knowing that all is well no matter what the outward appearances are.
So how do you find inner peace that eludes some and glows like a bright light from others on a daily basis?
Well, there is no one standard answer to it, it is depends on who you are and what works best for you.
For some people, they believe inner peace requires divine intervention, their “higher power” is the one who will either bless them with inner peace, or saddle them with burdens to see how they handle life’s twists and turns.
Others, they achieve serenity by awakening, removing as much stress as possible from their lives and consciously working toward to their inner solace.
Forgot where I read it, it said, Buddhism and Hinduism are both focused on self-delivered tranquility, they practice the more physical ancient arts of Tai Chi and Yoga. Beside that, it suggested meditation, deep breathing, and hypnosis are also techniques to help you calm your mind and relieve stress.
Whether you turn to a higher power to welcome peace into your world or not, as you move toward finding that inner peace, you’ll start to see its effect on the rest of your world – you will see others react to you in a different, more positive way. Because you won’t be carrying around the baggage of your emotional wounds, you productivity will increase and your mind will be free to focus on what you need to do, not on what happened a week ago that launched your emotions into turmoil.
In addition, if you go around and ask people about their top ten wish list, many of them will say World Peace, especially in these days and age when we are conditioned to fear the worst.
Unfortunately, not many people understand that – world peace isn’t achieved by treaties between governments or world leaders brokering deals, or war and violence against others. World peace (if it is to happen), it can only be achieved by a world of people whose priority is inner peace.
“Peace is not a relationship of nations. It is a condition of mind brought about by a serenity of soul. Lasting peace can come only to peaceful people.” ~ Jawaharal Nehru
Inner peace is the most valuable thing that we can cultivate. Nobody can give us inner peace, it is only our own thoughts that can rob us of our inner peace.
