Peace of mind, what does that mean? Now a days, we need to think about peace, but in our own spiritual peace, because we don’t have any tranquility in ourselves, in our own mind, so the world in which we live is a terrific chaos, and we are conscious of the disorder outside us. We don’t have time to think about what is happening in ourselves, because the beginning of this chaos isn’t outside us but inside us. Who is us? The man, in singular, yes, I, myself, I live here and now, and what does this mean? It means thatI can create peace in my mind, so my world is going to be in peace, yes, the man can be in peace with himself and with his world, and the beginning for peace is here in the mind of every man of good will. We can believe it or not, but, in any way, there is cause and effect. We can see the effects, but we don’t want to see the causes. Results are here and every man can be happy or unhappy, what do we want?
Peace of mind is not something to be found only on the Himalayas, by monks and hermits. It is attainable here and now, wherever you are, irrespective of your external circumstances, since it is an inner state, and is independent of circumstances and external conditions.Peace manifests, when the incessant inner chatter of the mind slows down. When it appears, anxiety, stress, worries, fear, mental and emotional restlessness, nervousness and impatience disappear. It is a state of inner calmness, tranquility and serenity, which brings forth happiness, tolerance, inner poise, inner balance and self-control.
Peace of mind is an acquired skill, which requires time, practice and perseverance to develop, just like any other skill. With the right training, and with desire, motivation, patience and perseverance, you are sure to attain at least some degree of inner peace.Peace of mind will enable you to manifest calmness and tranquility in your daily life, and also in difficult and trying situations. It will allow you to display emotional and mental detachment whenever needed, and thereby avoid being too affected by other people’s words, feelings and behavior. It will also enable you to control your reactions and become a happy, patient, tolerant and open-minded human being.
Peace of mind is one of those instants in life that are hard to describe, but easy to know. We all know the sensation. In those fleeting instants, there are no doubts, anxieties, or cares. For a flash, life is totally under modification. It is a sensation that we all wish in life, but it is few, far between, and brief. At least it seems that way.
“Freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions.”
It all surprises with the basic desire to be satisfied. Everybody wants to be happy. Even if someone privileges they want to be unhappy, seeking that unhappy state really makes them happy.Joy cannot occur without peace. In fact, echo on happy instants will also present peace. Happiness cannot openly coincide with chaos, making peace of mind dangerous. If it seems like they overlap, dig deeper and they will begin to distinguish.
