Inner Peace – LETTING GO of the Past & Future

Inner Peace – Balance at Present – Letting go of Past & Future

Past and future Have No Reality of their Own – Unknown

Letting go of the past is essential if we wish to experience peace and contentment in the moment. What happened or what may happen exist only as ideas in our head. As our attention can only be in one place at a time, when we are lost in thinking of the past, we miss the moment, current reality and miss out the simple contentment that is available to us right now. We spend our present days playing mental movies of the past and future in our heads. And in doing so, we miss the gift of happiness that the present moment contains.

Inner Peace – The Importance of Accepting People Where They Are

Inner peace Accepting People Where They Are
Inner peace  – Accepting People Where They Are

On my journey to find Inner peace – I was recently in a situation where the actions of a person where confusing, hurtful, and frustrating for me. I spent so much time judging, being sad that he wasn’t acting in a way that I expected, being hard on myself, and wondering what I might have done to make him act this way. I have to interject that these are all behaviors that I know will only cause me more suffering, but I do believe that trying situations are always tests to see just how much we’ve learned on our paths in life.

Finding Inner Peace in Adversity

Finding Inner Peace
Finding Inner Peace

Many people are undergoing extreme internal and external chaos during the frequent shift and the resulting changes it imposes on one’s lifestyle. The forces of transformation are chaotic and confusing to an unprepared mind and body.

When we are stagnant in our life, we are like running a treadmill of repeated patterns, these patterns repeat over and over, and that oppresses and suppresses our consciousness growth. This makes a human being feel truly unhappy and isolated from connection and meaning. Being stagnant in our identity, routine and daily schedule, also suppresses our mental development. This stagnation of the soul, promotes anti-life values and oppression. This oppression weighs even heavier on a burdened mind, and therefore leads to a burdened body. And a burdened body and cluttered mind becomes unhappy, disconnected, chaotic and then sick. Continue reading “Finding Inner Peace in Adversity”

Creating an Inner Peace That Endures

My encounter with inner peace started few years ago and let me to understand this state of mind in much better way. Sometimes we just need to keep few things in mind

Believing I am Loved

Understanding that negative childhood imprinting leads to feeling unloved and having low self-esteem, I looked for and found the truth about myself. It was not what I had been led to believe was true!

Believing we are loved comes with knowing who we are, not judging ourselves or others for mistakes we make, and from daily meditation in which we feel the unconditional love of something greater than ourselves. Continue reading “Creating an Inner Peace That Endures”

Inner Peace – A State of Mind

Inner Peace – A State of Mind

In modern age, our understanding and control of the external world have increased considerably. We have witnessed remarkable material progress, but there has not been a corresponding increase in human happiness. There is no less suffering in the world today, and there are no fewer problems. Indeed, it could be said that there are now more problems and greater unhappiness than ever before.

When things go wrong in our life and we encounter difficult situations we tend to regard the situation itself as the problem, but in reality whatever problems we experience come from the mind. If we were to respond to difficulties with a positive or peaceful mind they would not be problems for us; indeed we may even come to regard them as challenges or opportunities for growth and development. Problems arise only if we respond to situations with a negative state of mind. Therefore, if we want to transform our life and be free from problems we must learn to transform our mind. Sufferings, problems, worries, unhappiness, and pain all exist within our mind; they are all unpleasant feelings, which are part of the mind. Through controlling, purifying, pacifying our mind, we can stop them once and for all. Continue reading “Inner Peace – A State of Mind”

“Peace of mind is not the absence of conflict from life, but the ability to cope with it.” ~Unknown

Like many people, I lived my life for a lot of years failing to understand inner peace is a choice. I am not sure what I thought. Perhaps I didn’t believe anyone could feel a lasting peace inside. I did know that my own feelings of peace have been always transitory.

There were many ups and downs in my life, too many claims on my time and too many difficult situations to be dealt with. I think I actually believed inner peace could only be achieved by monks and saints, or anyone living a reclusive life who didn’t have to deal with everyday struggles.

Peace Is Accepting This Moment.

From childhood, we are taught to be planners, to think ahead, and to foresee how our future will look. Many of us look at life like an equation. If I do this, this, and this, it will equal to a desired outcome. In theory of ideal life, this all is completely rational, but in real life, we know that this is not how life works, and I promise you, that’s for the best.

I used to be a person who always wanted to know how things were going to unfold. I’ve always wanted to know all the answers. Even though it’s wonderful to be informed and in the known, some of the most stressful situations of my life have stemmed from desiring to know it all, and not surrendering to what it is. There may be many uncertainties in life but there are also infinite possibilities. It is impossible for us to know how our days will come and go, and I think it’s better this way. The truth is, if we “knew it all” life would be so much less interesting. When we have a tight grip on how we think our lives should look, we block out the guidance of the really magical lives that are waiting for us. Continue reading “Peace Is Accepting This Moment.”

Turning Wheel of Karma on Your side

The law of karma is that powerful that it even takes into account things that are spoken, spiteful things, nice things, rude things, etc. If a person says something hateful towards another, then they will get something similar said back to them at a later date.

It is said that every word we utter is a spiritual strength and that it resonates in the dimensional atmosphere. There is no need to worry about karma, it is an ally as well as an enemy, it is not partial or biased. There is a way to get karma on our side and to get it to work for us, the methodology is simple. Do unto others as you would do unto yourself, treat others as you desire to be treated yourself. If you want to be treated with distain, then act with distain, if you want to be treated with kindness, then act with kindness. Continue reading “Turning Wheel of Karma on Your side”

Ending the Yin Yang of our Karmic Life

Yin and Yang: in nutshell

  • Are opposite qualities
  • Never exist in isolation:
  • Never exist in a static 50-50 balance:
  • Are always spoken of in relative terms:
  • Are interdependent: One cannot exist without the other, they can be distinguished but not separated
  • Are mutually consumptive:
  • Are mutually transformative: Extreme Yin ultimately transforms into Yang and vice versa

KARMA – The Yin and Yang of it

The Chinese philosophical symbol of Yin and Yang illustrates the one great Truth of the Universe that all things are held in balance, even this great globe upon which we minutely sit rests in space in a majestic circular state of finely balanced tension. Upset that tension and it will either readjust, or fall apart ! The same applies to such abstracts as good and evil, sound and silence, health and sickness, life and death they are all relative to each other, all depend upon each other, all the finely balanced the one with the other.
