Let’s start with what steals our inner peace?
What are those elements of our life that have the ability to steal our inner peace?
Well, your anger towards someone else, ego, jealousy, competition, other people’s opinions towards you or your opinions towards them, same goes for judgements as well, failure (if you let it affect you) – these are some of the top things that affect the majority.
The question is, how can you let anyone else steal your inner peace?
The above-mentioned elements come into power when someone else is involved in that equation.
That means, you, yes you, are giving someone else the power to steal your inner peace.
Once you understand this, once you understand what inner peace means, what is in your control, what isn’t, what elements have the power to change that, then you can start practising towards controlling them.
You can start working on your traits, what pinches you, what doesn’t, what sparks your emotions, what doesn’t and ultimately, be in control of your inner peace.
In such a way, that you have the power over it and no one else can steal it.
What We Think
What We Say
How we Act
What we Eat
What we consume
What type of people do you attract around you
What goals do you want to pursue
Why do opinions bother me
Why do people compare
Why do people have egos
Why are people happy with materialistic things
Where does the real happiness lie
Why can’t you be happy right now
What is my purpose in life
What is life all about
It’s all connected.
Everything in life
Everything is something that you either hold on to or you let go of it.
It’s more of understanding whether that certain something is adding to your life or taking away something.
If it’s adding, then it’s a definite hold.
However, if its the other way round, if its taking away something – anything – energy, peace, calmness, then its time to let go it.
It could be easy, it could also be difficult, but that choice needs to be taken so you could be more balanced, more peaceful, instead of holding onto things that weigh you down.
What we think
What we feel
What we eat
What we drink
What exercise we do
It not only has an effect on our exterior actions, that is the words we speak, the work we do, the things we experience,
But, it has an effect on our inner body too.
Did you know that?
Every emotion we feel releases an energy of that sort in the body too.
Every thing we eat and drink is how our body processes it, and whether it is good for the body or not, then has an outcome accordingly.
Whether we exercise or not, not just has an effect on how “slim” we become, but it has an effect on our body processes too.
Everything we do has an effect, not just on the outward, but inward too.
We usually don’t think about how it affects our body, our mind and our soul.
If we become a tiny bit more mindful than usual, then we can start taking care of our mind, body and soul, at least from now on, if not before.
When you plan on running a race, usually there’s two scenarios as to how everyone looks at it – either you win the race or you lose.
No one really wants to notice the constant efforts and practice that was taking place behind-the-scenes and the mentality it needed to prepare for that race.
No one really wants to acknowledge those who finished that race, but not just first.
No one really gives a pat on the back to those who couldn’t finish the race. A pat on the back for trying!
This world we live in wants everyone to win.
Is that possible though?
If 5 people participate and they do their best, yet only one wins, how are we, as a society, reacting to the other four?
Do they stop running then?
If I asked you, is your phone charged right now?
You’d know the answer.
What is the phone battery percentage right now?
You’d know the answer.
Be it your phone, or your headphones, your laptop, the point is that you’re aware when it comes to these items that you use on a daily basis?
However, what about you? What is your battery percentage right now? How long will you last before charging yourself again?
Do you know the answers to these questions?
We often focus on external items that control our lives, but forget to take a inner look that we actually have the control over.
Do I need to upgrade my battery power?
That can be done.
Do I need to recharge myself now?
That can be done too.
Is the battery getting low?
You can be aware of that too.
When you’re self-aware about yourself, the perspective towards looking at yourself and the outside world changes.
You now want to use that battery efficiently, you don’t want to drain it out, right?
You can then smartly utilise that power on things that matter or the things that interest you, just like your smartphone.
Do you feel that pressure on your shoulders?
I think its because, all of us, carry a lot of baggage along with us.
Wherever we go.
Baggage of emotions.
Baggage of opinions.
Baggage of negativity.
Everyday it gets heavier and heavier.
If that bag is not emptied bit by bit, it’ll reach a weight where it wouldn’t be possible to carry it anymore.
More than that, it would actually stop you from moving forward.
Let’s have a look at what’s inside that bag and try emptying it bit by bit.
