From my own experiences, today, I’d like to write down some salient points on ‘PEACE OF MIND’ in this blog.
We all must have come across the various states of our mind. Before we know the peace of mind, we must know our mind.
Enquire from within. Try to know your mind. Just explore where your mind exists and what does it do.
In fact Mind exists nowhere. It doesn’t exist but it does make you feel its presence in your day to day life, and day to day activity. So this way we can say that mind is nothing but mere an illusion. It’s ultimately a reflection of our consciousness. The way any object reflects, manifests in the mirror, same way in the space within, the shadow or reflection of our consciousness reflects which is highly supported by our intellectual.
Now we have to see what does mind do. The Mind does no work but producing the thoughts. Thoughts could be positive, full of positive vibes and constructive or they could be negative full of negative energy and destructive. It’s said that there are both angel and demon reside within our mind. The angel will obviously follow the pursuit of positive energies and the demon will look after negative ones. Now the real battle begins from here. Inside the mind where we often get to face both angel and the demon. Real challenge isn’t facing the angel, real challenge is facing our demon. This demon will always take our mind to the extent that’s apprently not good for the health of our mind. For instance, negative thoughts or overthinking. Thoughts are the best weapons of both angel and demons. It’s up to us to handle the flow of our thoughts in the right manners. Demon is always ready to eradicate the good thoughts and as the same way angel dispices the bad thoughts. Bad thoughts are those disturb our mind and snatch away the peace of mind.
Be attentive, it’s not the eruption of our negative thoughts that disturbs our mind. It’s the importance and attention that we give to the negative or destructive thoughts/force, that is the cause of our disturbed and miserable mind. So now we have discovered about two different sides of our mind. Now we gotta go deeper and explore the reason for restlessnees of mind. We gotta find out reason for the lack of peace of mind. We need to see what’s the thing that disturbs our peace. When a helpless, small child is hungry, and if it doesn’t get food on time it cries a lot because it cant speak. Same way when our mind expects something or tries to have the desires for some stuff and we fail to give it to the mind, it then agitates. It gets highly disturbed. It ruins the beauty of peace that we carry within. It plays a role of a rebel. This defiant state of mind spoils the peace of our mind and that leads to frustration, tension, anger, depression etc.
So what’s the right way to stop the demon of mind from destructing the peace? It’s simple. Just stop giving importance to anything that disturbs mind. Stop giving importance to thoughts that spoil the good energy of a peaceful mind.
Do what your inner voice tells you to do. Do not do out of desires or expectations. Desires are the roots of our all problems in life. But we will never understand this thing because we do not want to understand it. Because we have got used to pamer the demon of desires of our mind. Our desires are our real enemy. It exists right within our mind. Mind is the illusion so desires would become a part of that illusion the moment it comes in the contact with our mind. So this clarifies that an illusion could not be a reality, hence that which is not a reality, could not be a part of our inner peace. Illusion is temporary. Temporary substance cannot give you eternal bliss at any cost.
Most importantly, every thought that comes to our mind goes away. So don’t allow your mind to be kept chained up by the constant flow your thoughts. Just witness the flow of thoughts. I again and again say, if you wanna be at peace, just do not give any importance to thoughts. Thoughts flow like the wind flows. So they come near you, and go away. The wind comes near you, touches you and goes away. You don’t run after that flow of wind. Same way you don’t have to run after every flow of thoughts. Just let it go. You just decide to be at peace under any conditions. Nothing can make your miserable; from there and then…you atain the purest form of peace that will give you bliss.
So after reading above things you may say that to have no desires is the key to unlock the treasure of abundance of peace, love and bliss.
So do not give importance to the thoughts that disturb your mind. Be happy. Keep your mind happy by practicing the peace of karma. What’s the PEACE OF KARMA? That we will see in my next blog. Till then take care and be blessed.
Dessert: “Wrong thinking is the cause of our misery. Wrong thinking can be corrected by right thinking, not by suspension of the thoughts.”
