50. Three ways to have peace of mind
- be clear to oneself
- accept who you are
- been sure of what you want
The worst situation in life is the absence of clarity of who you are. What you really are. And all things beyond your control because you let the pleasure reign first and foremost more than anything. We are always in a hurry for a quick result, quick fix. Anything that is quick is not long-lasting. This is why in no time we found ourselves at the dead end of feeling empty and lost. And even more confuse than ever. Creating the largest mental problems in the history of humanity.
There are phenomena that is becoming more pronounce now – crazy shooters, terrorists, suicide, abandoned children, more abortions, more drug addicts and most of all everyone thinks they deserve all things without hard work and patience. To begin with many people are in a limbo – at a lost how to find peace. The prophecy has arrived. Children have no respect to authorities. The criminals are getting younger, they become irresponsible, wants the juice of love but not the care and responsibility that entailed with it.
Many increase in unwanted pregnancy, more unnecessary killings, more irresponsible production of children. Parents became lower than animals, they abandon or abort their children. They are narcissistic and they are multiplying. The virtue of commitment and sacrifice are fading away by the day. How to live in peace is not something that comes from the alcohol we drink or drugs we take or even psycho-therapy we are in. Peace is a matter of the heart and soul and spiritual in nature.
Peace of mind comes from living the golden rule. Following your heart and disregard what negative people may say for as long as you know what you want. Do not be bothered with so called concerns and advice. Be careful with whom you are listening to. There is a tendency we might unknowingly be influenced without us not really aware of it. There is always that subliminal effect in our consciousness on what you hear. We do it. For example, we buy soda and fast food which are actually not quite right for our well-being but we keep buying and doing what they say through billboard, advertisements in social media, promotions and television advertisements.
Sometimes, we do things because it is programmed by things we hear but not the right thing to do. We need to be clear with our mission in life, our objective. Our goals and targets. The most important one is our principle and values in life. Prioritize your priorities. Another reason why peace is not in us is because we are disconnected to the source. We chose to unplug the spirit that comes from God instead we accept the spirit of alcohol and other things I mentioned above. Quite frankly you need to go back to the source before we could discuss the ways to have peace of mind.
Once you are plugged in to the source would make you instantly clear with yourself it does not work like magic. There is full effort and commitment on throwing away which are not helpful, making Grey areas gone away. And it is not easy in the beginning but it is so calming and relieving in the middle and liberating in the end. The truth shall set you free. We are nothing without God. How can you be clear when the source of clarity you have rejected? If you cannot accept that then forget about being clear with yourself because you won’t be.
First, we need to understand as human beings we are complicated. Rather, we make things complicated when life is but simple. This is us and we couldn’t help it. Our own desire which is more likely out of sync with good living will always be there. That is the root cause of complications. Peace of mind should have an anchor of knowing who you really is? Where you really come from? Why you are here? Who made you exist? You should have clarity of who you really are in all aspects.
Another way to have peace of mind is to accept who you are. The culture of this world makes us all feel unwanted, not enough, incomplete, Society induce us to run towards this school of thoughts, fashion, trending in way of life we keep running to a place where we are not meant to be. Just as the fish is not for the dry land nor the elephant for the ocean but to each its own world. Worms thrive in moist soil. Flowers thrive with rain and sunshine while others thrive in darkness. Men thrives in the light and the words of God.
This is whether you like it or not the only handbook meant for proper living and knowing why we are living and our purpose. If you have the courage and the guts. The humility and the intention to life a purposeful peaceful life read your manual. The Book. Be motivated, passionate, open-minded, grateful and inspired. All these questions will be answered completely by the Word of God which are in the bible. This is where the secret of an abundant awesome living can be found it was written for this purpose and more so for our salvation and till today it is free for the asking.
The only way the truth and the life has been told millions of times and most of us treat it like marvel comic. Reading for entertainment. A book should be read to gain good development in our lives. Accepting who we are, accept whoever your parents are, our ethnicity. Accepting our mistakes, taking responsibility, taking a stand, taking a decision and choose. And choose which will make you truly a wholesome person. To live a life of harming others is not living at all it is death while you are still existing. You are not the only one who has the right to live.
Live according to your dreams for as long as this will not infringe to the liberty, well being, life and property of anybody. There is a rule in everything. In games, in running a business, in a factory, in a group of people like army, police, employees and people living in a city. We need to have boundaries. The earth no matter how vast it is has its boundaries, so are all things in it, land water and plants and fish and so on and so forth. The constellations, the Milky Way, the galaxies and the universes have their own boundaries.
They have these limitations of which is they go beyond it would bad and worse the consequences could only be catastrophic. In our life it is written, love God with everything you are, you have and you do. How can you do that is you do not even lift a finger to know Him. The second one is to love others as you love yourself. These are the foundation of right living. No matter what you say it will always boil down to who you are. Do you accept yourself, are you clear who you are? These questions must be settled first before thinking of what you really want.
What you really want means it is in your mind day in and day out. Once you have complete focus and perseverance, what you really want will come to you. It is the law of life. What you really want depends on your age, time and circumstance. Be realistic and be assured you could do it especially in your heart.
Having said all these having peace of mind, the genuine peace only comes from above. He said in a sense, the peace He gives is not like the peace we get in this world, true peace comes from Him. It never changes, it is not subjected to time and circumstances. Because God will be the drive of that peace. Which means life will be good all the time. When His peace reign it means life is a taste of heaven. Peace is not an easy state of mind.
We may be clear to ourselves, we accept who we are or we are sure of what we wanted but is you come short of putting your trust and confidence in God these things become worldly peace. It can change anytime as per your mood, circumstances or state of your economy.
