I believe that at least for once in life, each one of us must have experienced true peace and serenity. Though moments of tranquility are very less as compared to the moments of sheer restlessness and despair in our lives but we all try to strive for at least a handful of good peaceful memories.
Well! A lot of times we ourselves misguide our joys and happiness because our mind gets confused every now and then and makes the situation in our hand discomforting. Several precious moments simply slip away from our day-to-day living because we tend to be tied in some sort of guilt, shame, ego etc.
Today, in this article we are going to highlight few things that you have been doing wrong or probably things you need to take control of to make your life peaceful and harmonious.
THE ANSWERS ARE WITHIN
‘Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without’
Life will throw a thousand tantrums at you. You might get confused to the core of your thinking powers but the marooned reality is that the answers to all your confusions and slip-ups are within you. The story of your life is not with the world outside, your story lies within you. All you need is to take a look inside of you.
‘Your own self-realization is the greatest service you can render to the world’’
You need to adapt to the real picture and make your conscience equipped with the fact that things happen, deeds are done and that nothing is permanent in life. Whether good or bad, everything will pass. Peace and tranquility will only knock your doors if you understand your individuality and respect your ordinary as well as extra-ordinary being.
The MAGIC OF POSITIVE THINKING
Positive thinking says, ‘I am in charge of how I feel & today I choose happiness’
Most of us fail to realize the exquisite power of positive thinking. We remain in the dilemma that how can some positive thoughts produced in our mind have magnified affects in our purpose and calling. But yes it does! It all starts and ends with positive thinking.
Even if you are in the darkest phase of your life, positive thinking can help your sail through all the disorder with grace and growth. Your psychological and physical well-being elevates to another level when you start thinking positively about your life and your surroundings.
THE ART OF FORGIVENESS
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.”
To ensure a fruitful and a peacefullife, learn how to articulate forgiveness in your life. Forgiving people is an art that not many people master but those who do are left with inner peace and calmness in their lives. Not seeking revenge and forgiving people’s mistakes helps you establish healthier relationships as you refrain yourself from all the psychological distress. By forgiving others, you do not subject yourself to unwanted anxiety, stress and pain. You conquer your self-esteem issues and emerge as a mature and better person. So, let go for your own sake.
BE THE CHANGE
‘Change your life by being the change yourself’
Every one of us wishes to change the world and mold it according to our own viewpoints. Instead we never think of becoming that change. We must know that before we change 7.4 billion people, we need to ourselves. When you will change, your near and dear ones will observe and bring the change and so this will work as a chain reaction and your surroundings will begin to change. This does not mean that overnight the world will be at your footsteps, it simply means that among an ocean of people with so much diversity, at least you will have a chunk of people who will believe in your ideologies and will appreciate the world like you do.
These are five golden methods that each one of you must adapt in your lives to cultivate a peaceful existence. Do not let your harmony decay by fighting and giving your ego the highest priority. Just remember that your understanding and your good faith will bring you peace and harmony.
