A Way to Inner Peace
By Terje Brooks Ellingsen
We all need to find our inner peace, especially in our fast paced and turbulent every day lives. Outlined below are some steps or tips on how to search for peace of mind and make it a part of your life.
First you should examine your general attitudes toward life and find out which attitudes are right for you. Be honest with yourself. If you find yourself being a person who lives on the surface you should seriously consider to change this lifestyle since such attitudes can only cause disharmony in your life. Try to get below your life's surface to discover its varieties and realities. Meet all your challenges and solve the problems that life sets before you. If you make immediate problem solving a habit you will experience that it contributes to your inner growth and positive self development. Also take a look outside yourself and your ego and try to help solving others or collective problems as well. This will also contribute to your personal growth and peace within your self.
Then examine your beliefs. Are they good or do they seem right for you? When you have identified all the good things you believe, start to practice them. Peace within yourself can never be reached unless your beliefs and practice are in harmony. Like the law of gravity and other laws of nature, there are some universal laws governing human conduct and behavior. If you obey these laws you will be pushed toward harmony; disobedience make us disharmonic. We are able to distinguish between good and bad beliefs.
Then you should search for and find your place in the pattern of life. You can begin by putting into practice all the good things you believe. Life can not be in harmony unless belief and practice are in harmony. You must go in yourself and ask - only you can find it. Use meditation techniques or other methods for searching in receptive silence. When you start to come up with some clues, start to live in accordance with it by doing all the good things you are motivated toward and give them priority in your life.
We all have an inner and outer life. Prioritizing your inner life is not the same as denying your outer. You must bring your inner and outer well-being into harmony by getting rid of unnecessary burdens and meaningless activities. You must find a way to make your wants and your needs to become the same. When you have accomplished this, you will experience a harmony between inner and outer well-being. You will feel clean, pure and un-cluttered and this wonderful and harmonic feeling is what we call inner peace.
