Peace is purely a state of mind and an intangible element that can only be felt. If I ask you or anyone, what does peace mean to you? Everyone will have their quaint explanations. For some, peace is being with their family, and for others, peace is in solace.
In expressive terms, peace means freedom from all disputes, absence of war, absence from mental stress, and anxiety. Peace comes from within. We always have a constant battle between mind and heart, and peace is the element that can probably fix it.
We need to have peace within countries, states, politicians, family and everyone we come across. It comes when you have a feeling of complacency when you are free from your inner conflicts.
What happens when you are not at peace? You swallow anxiety, jealousy, and hatred, resulting in disputes within the family, at work, and with your dear ones.
I recall an incident of my aunt who gave up on her marriage. She had no hope and wanted to quit. One fine morning we (me and my parents) visited their place. I overheard my mom’s conversation with my aunt. I heard my mother saying,
“no matter how hard the situation is, you have to remember never to give up.”
This phase is just a chapter of your life not the whole book; you can write a brand-new chapter on your own.
When we were leaving, my mom hugged my aunt and said, don’t let the peace inside you die. She said don’t let one negative action destroy the entire positive relationship that you have. That was the day I realized the importance of peace.
You only have one life.
Don’t you want to live it to the fullest?
Why stress over everything?
Anger is also one of the vague reasons for destroying the peace within us. People are always telling us to listen to our heart, not our mind, and some say use your mind, not your heart.
Will someone tell me who I should listen to?
After a long time, I discovered that if you have a harmonious relationship with your mind and heart, you can easily come away from your predicaments.
Peace begins from within: if you are not peaceful inside, the world you see will be chaotic.
If we will be at peace, only then will we keep this world at peace. We need to maintain a balance between our hearts and our minds to attain peace. This time, go on a vacation within yourself while sitting at home and discover your inner peace.
So what are you waiting for?
Are you ready to have a tryst with peace?
