4 Practical and Unique Ways to Attain a Peaceful State of Mind/Inner Peace

Published

on

Inner peace refers to a state of mental calmness despite the presence of stressors. Therefore, a person who has attained INNER PEACE is not stressed with whatever happens in his life because he welcomes whatever life throws at him.

Today, we are concerned with many things hence making it difficult for us to attain inner peace. We strive to achieve this state of mind but it appears impossible for us to do so. However, as much as it seems impossible, I came to realize that inner peace is a state of mind that all of us can attain.

Both my life experiences and my research on inner peace have helped me realize 4 practical ways to attain inner peace.

You can do the following if you want to have a peaceful state of mind

  1. Build Your Self-Confidence

You must always work on building your confidence because believing in yourself enables you to know that you have the power to deal with whatever happens. It is easier to attain inner peace if you believe in yourself because no problem or difficulty will be big enough to stress you.

  1. Don’t View the Present Circumstance as a Problem

You will definitely fail to attain inner peace if you believe that your present circumstances are a problem that you need to overcome for you to be happy. Stress, depression, and frustration occur when you believe that your present circumstances are preventing you from living a happier life.

If you see your present moment as a problem, it will appear as a problem hence preventing you from having a peaceful state of mind. However, if you make friends with the present moment and believe that things are working out for you, and not against you, you become peaceful and you also gain dominion over your present situation.

  1. Practice Optimism

Optimism occurs when an individual focuses on the favourable side of an event. Therefore, you become optimistic when you believe that things will happen for the good.

Optimism will enable you to attain inner peace because it’s easier for you to become stress-free and less anxious if you believe that whatever is happening will turn out the way you want.

  1. Read Inspirational Material

Research reveals that reading inspirational material every morning enables a person to achieve inner peace because inspirational stuff makes you take a positive approach towards life. For instance, inspirational information makes you realize that success is achievable, and failure is not the end of everything. Also, inspirational information makes you believe that life will always provide you with what you want.

It is easy for you to be peaceful if you realize such factors about life because most of us fail to attain inner peace when we fail, or when we are doubtful about getting what we want.

Thank You So Much For Reading. Hope the information helped.

There is a Great Intelligent Life Force That Exists Within You

Published

on

Science has enabled us to realize that contrary to popular belief, intelligence does not only exist in the head, but it’s present throughout the human body. As Pamela Hope puts it in her article, The Cells In Your Body Are Intelligent, ‘Human beings are a synthesis of the different levels of intelligence that exist within them.’

Our brains are intelligent, every cell is intelligent, and our heart too is intelligent. These organs perform a set of tasks that reveal the existence of an intelligent Life Force within us because they only function in a live body. In a dead body, these organs become useless.

Some scientists argue that food is responsible for powering the brain, the heart, and other body organs. This argument is wrong because food cannot power a dead brain or heart. Food only works when an individual is alive, and for this reason, the Intelligent Life/God Force within us is responsible for the functionality of our body organs.

Besides possessing intelligence that enables body organs to function intelligently, the God/Lifeforce within also contains wisdom that can provide guidance if we access it. Maxwell Maltz, in his book, The New Psycho-Cybernetics, agrees with this idea but he puts it differently.  According to him, ‘we have a built-in guidance system, put there by the Creator to help us achieve our goals.’ 

Many spiritual leaders often ask us to turn inwards whenever we need guidance or wisdom because they know that the Intelligent God force exists within us. This life force often knows what is supposed to be done in any situation. And according to Natalie Collins, ‘it has answers to the deepest and most mysterious questions of life that no one else can answer.’

For this reason, always trust yourself because you possess an Intelligent power which is present in all living things. The power is always ready to help you overcome obstacles, and reach your full potential. It contains wisdom and power that can help you achieve your wildest dreams if you know how to tap into it.

“Within you, whoever you may be, is the ability and power to do whatever you need to be successful. Within you, right now, is the power to do things you never dreamed possible.” – Maxwell Maltz, American Cosmetic Surgeon & Author

According to many spiritual leaders, you tap into this power by trusting yourself, believing in the future, thinking higher thoughts, meditating, realizing its presence, and never fearing obstacles, uncertainties or anything that appears to prevent you from making progress. Worry and anxiety put the Intelligence Life Force to sleep. Therefore, you awaken it by having absolute confidence that good things are coming your way.

The same intelligence within you is the same intelligence that created the universe. It is omnipresent, all-knowing, and all-powerful. Always meditate on it, and constantly remind yourself that The Creator’s power exists WITHIN YOU, and if ‘God is for you, nothing can be against you?’ For this reason, be strong, be Courageous, Keep Moving, Keep Working, and Never Ever Give Up Because You Have All the Support You’ll Ever Need From the Greatest Power in The Universe.

‘Neither shall we say, Lo here! Or, Lo there! For, behold, The Kingdom of God is Within You.’ – Jesus Christ

 ‘Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was powerful than their circumstances.’ – Bruce Barton

Book Review

8 Key Learnings From Eckhart Tolle’s Book: A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose

Published

on

Eckhart Tolle, in his book: A New Earth, teaches the negative effects of the ego, and the factors that strengthen it. Also, he teaches how to transcend the ego, and stop identifying yourself with temporary things.

The book enables readers to shift their consciousness and live a fulfilling life. Here are the primary lessons I learned from it.

  1. Stop Labeling Things

The naming of both living and non-living things results in us failing to realize the true nature of everything. Avoid labeling things, and you will realize that everything is a mystery.

For instance, when you see an ant, don’t call it ant, just see it as a six-legged creature with consciousness and you will realize how mysterious the ant is. Similarly, when you see a bird, don’t think of it as a bird, instead, think of it as a creature with flying abilities, and you will realize that the bird is a miracle.

When you don’t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago.’ – Eckhart Tolle

  1. How Companies Trick You Into Buying Useless Things At A High Price

Many companies make you buy valueless things at a high price by making you believe that these items will add immense value to your life. They make you believe that you will be happy or famous if you buy expensive products such as Gucci or Louis Vuitton bags. However, these products become valueless when many people buy them.

  1. How to let go of the attachment to material things

The attachment to material things is disastrous as it might result in chronic worry, anxiety, and unhappiness. We must, therefore, learn to let go of this attachment. But how do we let go?

Eckhart Tolle teaches that we can let go by realizing our attachment. Secondly, he teaches that this attachment disappears when we stop seeking happiness and security from these things.

  1. Poverty is a result of the ego

Everyone in this world can have more than enough. However, some egocentric individuals amass excess resources and force a large percentage of the world to share what is left. Their egos make them not to care that their greed is resulting in people lacking basic resources.

  1. The adverse effect of identifying yourself with your physical appearance

The modern society has been tricked into believing that beautiful, curvy girls and strong handsome men are the most valuable individuals. This belief has resulted in most of us using our physical appearance to determine our self-worth.

Little do we know that identifying ourselves with our physical appearance can lead to chronic stress and anxiety when our physical appearance fades. Beautiful girls and handsome men usually descend into depression when their beauty starts fading.

  1. The definition of Spiritual Awakening

According to Eckhart Tolle, spiritual awakening is the realization that what you think, experience, and perceive is not who you are, and that you can never find your true self in material things.

  1. 6 Main Things That Strengthen the Ego (Your Lower Self)
  • Wanting to be right all the time.
  • Judging
  • Anger
  • Complaining
  • Showing off
  • Feeling bad about other people’s success.

8. Give what you want to get what you need

Give anything you think people are not giving you. For instance, if people neither love nor respect you, you must start loving and respecting people.

You always receive what you give. Therefore, give away what you think is inadequate, and soon you will have more than enough. As Eckhart Tolle puts it, ‘whatever you think the world has failed to give you, you already have, but you will never know you have it unless you allow it to flow out.’
