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.
When you tell yourself, that I’ll do this ‘later’, what are you actually telling yourself?
In simple terms, it means that you don’t want to do that something right now and you’ll do it at a later point of time.
Although, if you break it down, it means, that certain something isn’t a priority for you to take care of it right now.
Well, in that terms, what is the priority of that thing on a scale of 1 – 5? 1 being the highest and 5 being the lowest.
Well, if its anything beyond a 3, then the probability of you taking on that thing at a later point of time seems unlikely.
A simple reason is because, one, its not that important to you, second, on a day-to-day basis or a weekly basis, there will be something that is going to replace things on the priority scale of 1 and 2.
On the basis of which, things beyond 3 aren’t going to be taken care of at all.
What’s the alternative?
Either take on only one or two things at a time, so there’s no point of pushing something to ‘later’.
Or being well-organized to a point that you complete that entire list of 1 – 5, irrespective of how many other tasks or things come on to your plate.
Every human being, irrespective of their caste, creed, age, sex and DNA, are different.
In terms of what?
Literally, everything is different for everyone.
Then why is it that one compares them with someone else, one aspires to be like someone else, one says I’m just not like the other person.
How are these things even possible when every human on this planet is different from each other.
Each unique in their own way.
The system doesn’t work that way because the system won’t be able to operate if everyone started thinking that way and that’s the problem we don’t realize.
However, if there’s one takeaway from this, that we should take for the rest of our lives is this…
Every human is different.
Until you don’t stumble upon the path of self-improvement, you never know you needed to improve.
Until you don’t stumble upon the path of positivity, you never know you needed it.
Until you don’t stumble upon the path of growth, you never know you wanted to grow.
This is such an interesting game of choice and chance.
Sometimes you stumble upon something by chance, and sometimes by choice.
Either ways, if you get the chance to stumble upon it, appreciate it.
It’s a path that you always wanted to walk on, but never knew you wanted to.
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.
Have you ever rolled the dice?
The probability is, you have.
A dice, in the form of a cube, has six numbers, from 1-6, one on each side of it.
You try rolling for a number that you wish for.
You try harder.
You try different styles.
However, when it leaves your hand and falls on the board, you never know what number is going to come up until its on the board.
You might appreciate the outcome or you might get disappointed by it.
That dice has such a metaphorical meaning though.
Every step we take in our life, has a different outcome.
We don’t know that outcome.
Until it happens.
We roll with life, wishing for something to happen, but sometimes it ain’t in our hands.
Again, whether we appreciate that outcome or be disappointed by it is up to us.
But at least, we tried, right?
