One way to add some instant personal
development is through practicing peace.
In today's hectic world, giving peace seems
to be a long lost wisdom. We've got to get ahead, we've got to worry about
what's on the news and what's happening in the world, we've got to struggle
to keep sane and keep our balance. The circumstances of our lives seem to
cause stress and anxiety on a regular basis. Peace is a good idea, sure, but
in general we don't feel much of it.
All of these reasons, though, are exactly why we need peace in our lives.
The actual experience of peace can instantly reduce stress and anxiety and
their aftereffects. Peace can instantly add to the quality of our current
experience and to our well being. It can allow us to enjoy the struggle and
flow of life, rather than stress over it.
Here are some powerful words of wisdom. Learn to give yourself peace. Give
it to yourself rather than hope for it or wait for the stars to align and
for all the circumstances of your life to be just right. Give yourself peace
There are many ways to generate peace in your own life. This short article
will focus on just one of them. It is a powerful practice that takes just
three to ten minutes, depending on how much time you have. Can you give
yourself three minutes to start generating peace into your experience?
Here is a simple peace practice. It is called peacefully remaining or
generous spaciousness. You sit alone and quiet for at least three minutes
and peacefully remain with whatever shows up in your awareness. You can have
your eyes open or closed. You can do this in your car before you go in to
work, at lunch, or whenever.
For 3 whole minutes, you ALLOW whatever thoughts and feelings you have
without resistance or trying to change or manipulate them. You just notice
your thoughts and feelings and let them be just the way they are.
As a general rule, we human beings are unconsciously at war with what is. We
are usually trying to resist or change our experience. We struggle with our
thoughts and emotions, trying to have good ones and get rid of bad ones. For
3 minutes, you simply practice allowing things to be the way they are. You
just breathe and notice and let things be okay just as they arise in your.
Give yourself a few minutes of peace a day and see what happens. If you want
to make the world a more peaceful place, start with yourself.
