Today I came up with an interesting & important topic “PEACE OF MIND”.
But, what does it mean?
Peace of mind is a state where you are free from worries and you stay calm. It is a state where you smile from your heart.
Let me tell a story:
There once was a King who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The King looked at all the pictures, but there were only two he really liked and he had to choose between them. One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror, for peaceful towering mountains were all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace. The other picture had mountains, too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky from which rain fell and in which lightening played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all. But when the King looked, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest in perfect peace. Which picture do you think won the prize? The King chose the second picture. Do you know why? ‘Because’ explained the King, ‘peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. That is the real meaning of peace.
The above story made us to realize what peace really means. Many of us, are really searching peace outside. But actually our peace of mind is in our hands, i.e., in our mindset & perception.
*Have we ever tried to be free without any thoughts?
*Have we ever felt satisfied with the things and stuffs we posses? No, we don’t.
Yes, we all have ‘n’ no.of. commitments, responsibilities. With our busy schedules, we are running to accomplish our tasks and commitments.
*Have we ever took time to enjoy the present moment?
Many of us are running in a fast forward mode, where we are losing our peace of mind, a good relationship, our health, enjoyment and so on.
-Achieving our goal is important.
– Earning and saving is important.
– Fulfilling family needs are important.
After all LIVING WITH PEACE OF MIND IS MORE IMPORTANT. Staying happy and smiling from your heart is more important.
*Take time to appreciate yourself.
*Take A moment to see the good in all
*Take time to enjoy your present moment.
Never ever say that ‘because of that person I lost my peace of mind‘. Make sure that no one spoils/disturbs your peace of mind. You have to be the only reason for your peace of mind. My dad always used to tell me that “Never ever give your KEY OF HAPPINESS in the hands of others, that key has to be in your hands”.
But many of us are failing to hold our key of happiness with us. Try to hold it tightly
In order to stay peacefully let us stop expecting, though it’s human nature to expect, let us try to stop our expectations. Come on everyone, from now on let us enjoy everything that comes in our way. Let’s accept all kinds of situations, let us start to say” I AM SATISFIED WITH WHAT I HAVE”.
At the end of the day,it is your decision, whether you gonna live with peace of mind or you gonna live a suffocated life.
The choice is left to you.
Think twice before you make any decision.
Do remember “The moment when you smile from your heart, is the moment where you are really living your life peacefully”.
And I do feel very happy for all those people who are smiling from their heart.
All the best.
Have a peaceful day.
