These are crazy times we are living in. Everything seems topsy-turvy and fear is in the air. The future hasn’t seemed this uncertain in a long time (at least not in my memory). Everywhere we turn, we hear bad news. Whether it’s affecting us directly or our next door neighbor, it doesn’t seem like we can get away from the stress.
No matter the craziness, however, it IS possible to regain and maintain peace of mind.
Inner peace is the result of a quiet mind. An inner quietness that allows you to see yourself and the world around you as it is, without any aggression, desires, frustration or stress you can feel content simply just to be. You do not need to be rich, successful, pretty or popular to feel this inner calm all you need is to be able to take control of your mind and stop the constant thoughts that repeat themselves over and over again.
Inner peace is not a fleeting emotion it is a state of mind. However people who find this peace do not simply live every moment with a smile on their face, They still get ill and feel sorrow as they are still human! The only difference is that there is a vast comforting space around such difficult times and an inner knowing that such times will pass.
There is also a very light uplifting and joyful feeling towards others and yourself which makes you feel complete. People who achieve this inner quietness generally show a kindness towards all living things and a deep appreciation for the natural world around them. ( I feel better )……
