Am I Peaceful?

2015-04-20_1250To be peaceful I need to recognize that I will not experience the absolute state of peace through places, situations or even feelings. Peace is a state of being.

The mind wanders and scurries around in all directions such that even when I find myself in a peaceful setting I may not always experience peace.

It is often said that the mind holds the key to being peaceful. I therefore endeavour to quieten my thoughts, but I quickly discover this is not enough. I will have simply achieved the state of ‘not thinking’ – which may allow me to experience fleeting moments of peace. However, to experience the absolute state of peace I need to make my thoughts and therefore my thinking peaceful.

I become watchful and attentive to my every thought. I ask myself ‘how peaceful are my thoughts?’ I check and change, check and change.

As I begin to experience the state of peace, my mind cooperates and becomes patient and trusting. So begins a wonderful relationship where I find my mind is generating fewer but more powerful thoughts. My mind no longer wanders and scurries around thinking, re-thinking and over thinking. Peace becomes my natural nature once again.

 

Om Shanti
