Inherent Peace



In order to overcome negative thoughts, the process is to make effort to remove them. But have you noticed that the more we think about them, even if it is to remove them, we find ourselves becoming more angry? This makes the influence of negativity stronger.

The solution lies in making effort of working with virtues. Instead of saying we will not work with anger; Practice working with our inherent peace. For this we need to make it a habit to fill that quiet still peace so that it emerges naturally even in difficult situations.

  1. It is really important to enjoy inner peace.
    I believe the inner peace id the highest form of happiness in the world. But how many people actually experience it? I hope more and more people can really experience it by removing all negative thought. Only that, we can have the path to enjoy the " true happiness "
    Nice post set me thinking, wish you happy and healthy, best wishes from coolingstar9

  2. This is so correct! When I find myself "trying" to stop thinking negatively, if I try to banish those thoughts from my head, they get stronger. But when I replace those thoughts with something positive, like saying thank you or I love you, then that's what continues, and the negative thoughts are gone. You can't have both positive thoughts and negative ones at the same time!

  4. It is not the easiest even for me. "Seeing" what I want to be, helps a lot. I want to be seen as a maker of peace.

  5. Anger come once we can't accept the failure or situation. Accept what ever GOD give to us and always think positive, the result will be peaceful mind.

  7. Matthiue Ricard (among others) is promoting "Mindfulness" (a westernization of Tibetan meditation). A fad. But somehow (research, maybe), western medicine has "fully accepted" the practice. Ricard is a French man who became a Tibetan Monk and a wonderful photographer. His lecture (linked below), I think, induces this state / teaches HOW (Through beautiful images and, well, being in the "presence" of masters). I watched it and started meditating every other day or so. Very inspirational and very beautiful video (60 mins)!
