A simple phrase, but sometimes it is very hard to maintain. Peace is a state of mind, of simply being. Somedays it is hard to reach that harmony with mind, body and spirit to simply be at peace. Think about it for a moment. For the mind not to worry or be stressed, the soul to be in complete harmony and your body not to feel unrest, now that it hard to attain, but it is attainable. You just have to figure out what works for you and what doesn’t, that takes time and dedication for you to tune into yourself.
Usually it starts with something someone has tried and it works for them and they tell you about it, let’s say a new diet plan. It is about acquired taste and if it is the right diet plan for your body. The same goes for a particular exercise that might work for someone else but not for your body. There could also be a certain type of relaxation exercise that works for someone but not for you.
Be at peace with who you are and what your capabilities are. Sure, you will constantly and consistently test those boundaries but you will come out feeling more content with who you are.
You can acquire peace just by knowing the right foods that agree with your body, the right exercise and the right relaxation methods that nurture your mind, body and spirit. You have to be willing to try new methods. Yoga might not work for you but maybe Tai Chi will. Be open and willing to try new things. You might find something that you really love doing.
When you reach the stage of peace and blissfulness, you will see in others how much they need it and how the unrest spills over to all areas of their life. You can only control you, but you can have a strong, inspiring and encouraging effect on others as well.
When you have reached a state of peacefulness within, you realize that moments are precious and you live them to the fullest without any regrets. You will realize that you are perfect, that reflection of you in the mirror is perfect and you accept it with any and all flaws that your mind dwells up. Sure, you can change your appearance, but it is what lies in your soul that makes up who you truly are. You can’t change the world, but you can change you. Once that happens, you can see the world around you change, people and situations will change. You will see and act more clearly when you are at peace.
I am at total peace with death. When my time comes I hope that others rejoice in my life and not mourn my death. When others around me transition from life, I know how blessed I was to have them in my life and I would celebrate their life by rejoicing and remembering just how special they were to me. That feeling will never fade through time as they will always remain in my heart.
I am lucky and I am blessed, I acknowledge that every day when I awake in the morning. I appreciate all things great and small. I greet everyone with a smile. Life is too short to live otherwise. May you find and keep peace in who you are and in everything you do.
