For me inner peace is peace of mind.....
the quietness in the head.....
the ability to feel joy in the being.......
despite what is happening in my outside world.
It is the ability to face everything calmly, with confidence and trust.
The feeling of knowing that I am protected, supported and guided by my eternal spirit/God self and my teams and that I have the ability to make a choice on what I do with every moment of my life brings me more and more peace.
This is expanded to every area of my life and my relationship with my partner as well as the outside world. Sometimes these areas get challenged, but the power is within me to choose to not get entangled or lose my center.
If things shift we both notice and immediately take actions to correct the issue. Most of the worldly weights are being set aside and addressed in a calm and trusting manner which is a big part of achieving this inner peace. We take the same approach to how we deal with people and situations in day to day life, and this also makes a big difference.
So how does inner peace feel to you, how do you want it to be? If you feel you are not there, how do you go about achieving this state of mind? It's a state of mind, when we change our mind, we arrive at this state. So what we need to do is figure out how to get there, what areas to look at and what action steps to take.
I will write down a few areas we need to look at first and slowly add more for you to be aware of and where to take action.
Learn to think for our self.
One of the most of important things for us to do is, learn to think for our self. Take information from all kinds of sources and make an informed decision that is in alignment to our highest good. This is hard these days as people are used to being told what to do and waiting for someone to tell them what do. We got to break this pattern and start to learn to think for our self. When we are children we are innocent and we first begin to take information from our parent to teach us and tell us what to do in our life, and then this goes on to school and the following institutions. But during this time most of us seem to miss something, the ability to think for our self, to make an informed decision without being manipulated by any outside source, listening to our inner self, our guidance, our own self telling us that some of these things are not in alignment to our values. But many keep on going as if everyone else out there knows more than us and respect them for their position and take the information without thinking twice. We listen to teachers, doctors, institutes, media, politicians and many others sources because they should know more and we should listen to them. Is that true in your life, think about it?
See the life we are living now and start taking stock of what we need and what we don't need.
Every day we are being bombarded by many situations and all we do is run from one place to another trying to catch up with all the tasks at hand. How many items did I take out from my to-do list today, maybe miss the lunch, or grab a takeout and eat while driving to the next place to do one more thing? When that's done the next thing on the list is in the mind. At work, at home, with family and friends, we are juggling so many things, trying so hard to make sure none of them fall down. This is stressing us out so much and we forget about our self and neglect our connection to our spirit, our health etc. So how many things on this to-do list is important and how many things that we juggle are really important to our well being, our joy and happiness and our inner peace? We need to take a hard look and then we will realize some of them are not necessary at all and we might be doing this simply because the world around us tell us so or the TV, the neighbor, the co-worker , family pattern tells us that this is important to us. Is it really important to us? We got to get out of the state of keeping up with the Joneses and find things that are in full alignment to our being, our health, our joy and well being.
Many people get up eat something, go to work, get whatever done on the way, come home do the daily chores and sit in front of the TV to relax and when tired they go to bed. This pattern happens every day for the rest of their lives unless they see this as an error and take actions to correct it.
For example, many people watch TV minimum 2 hours a day and much more in the weekends, and they access internet at work and home just for fun, this way of taking information without thinking is harmful to the person. Read about the data sphere effect and memes on the articles section to learn more about them.
This is the life of an average person in North America and this way of life and habit is spreading across Europe and Asia as well. So what is really going on that makes the normal people act this way, lose their way of life, and get in to unhealthy patterns? Something to think about.
When we are too tired of this lifestyle and cannot handle the pain any more, we can hear the call from our spirit, instead of taking pills to numb the pain or ignore this call. We can chose to change the way we think and change our habits and lifestyle to bring freedom to our self, freedom to our spirit from this illusion. This is not an easy task as we have created a pattern to live like this for centuries and this prison system is expanding very rapidly within the world with many new alien technologies.
Start breaking these patterns
Become aware of the whole day and how to utilize the day to your advantage and add new actions so you can have a connection to your eternal spirit so it can guide you.
See if you have these patterns or similar and exchange them with healthy habits:-
Most of these things seem common sense but these days some of these are not so common sense to people as they are so stuck in their life that it is hard to break free from the patterns. I found it easy to break patterns when I let go of watching TV. That seems to be the main source of programming for my being with all that advertising and news. After some time I felt my head getting cleared so I could think clearly and make conscious choices. So if you are watching TV this might be the first one to let go.
If you can start working on the above things you will slowly
see peace and joy coming to your life.
For some there is lot to do to get back on the path, for others it's not
that much. But we all can make it, we
simply have to make a turn or a d-tour and find our way to inner peace. There
are many more articles on this site and many will be added continually, please
utilize them as you feel guided. If there is anything that is not in alignment
to you simply discard it and move on. We
are here to be the love not to find fault or try to correct others. We don't have
time for that, we have to work on ourselves, when we change, everything around
