If you had one gift to give to yourself, what would it be? More money, better relationships or simply more inner harmony?
A peaceful life is yours when you remove ego and desires completely and visualize yourself as a peaceful being. If we look at our life as a series of experiences, we will appreciate the importance of our thoughts and emotions as we go from one day to another.
Each day is filled with numerous experiences, some new and some repetitive. If we take some minutes out every day to connect with ourselves and just be still, we will be able to gain perspective and feel comfortable—irrespective of the goings-on around us.
The Virtuous Cycle of Peace
When you are peaceful, you are able to think clearly and control negative emotions a lot better than you can in a disturbed state of mind. This way, one can also make wise decisions related to the different aspects of life: relationships, finances (besides others), thanks to a stable and peaceful mind.
In fact, all aspects of a person’s life benefit from spending some peaceful and quiet time alone. When one is contained, still and peaceful, one can give one’s best to everything one undertakes since the mind develops the power to focus with dedication.
Peaceful Life – How to Gain Peace
If you wish to experience Peace, think about it for some time and visualize yourself as a peaceful being. No matter how disturbed or distracted you may be, you will automatically be able to create some peaceful thoughts.
Just like we recharge our mobile phones and other gadgets after using them, our minds also need to be recharged to function optimally. The more frequently and regularly we do so, the better will be the quality of life we enjoy.
Only after one starts to commit some time to oneself dedicated to finding and restoring inner peace, can one move on to a regular routine of practicing meditation, which can open up a storehouse of positive energy for a person.
Manas and Arpita was a successful couple who believed in the popular philosophy of ‘Work hard and Party Harder.’ After a few years of living a life based on that belief, both of them felt de-motivated and directionless. Was life all about money, material achievements and showing off to others?
The emptiness and meaninglessness stuck Arpita first who became a follower of a renowned spiritual guru to sort out her feelings and inner disturbances. Manas, though resistant at first, soon followed suit since he too was experiencing the same emptiness.
Seeing how disconnected the couple was with their inner world and understanding the fast pace of their lives, the guru first guided them to spending peaceful time alone individually.
Taking out ten minutes everyday for doing nothing and just sitting down with their eyes closed seemed weird to the young couple at first but their affinity and respect for their guru helped them overcome this feeling.
The results soon followed and both of them noticed how their entire lives changed after a few months of this regular practice.
Gaining spiritual insights transformed their relationship, their priorities, their mood swings and their personalities.
They decided to make spiritual practice an important part of their lives forever and live a meaningful peaceful life filled with inner power and positive peaceful energy.
Conclusion – Peaceful Life
