The outer world floods our brain and senses with a continual stream of data input. Messages from the environment around us flow into our brain, which then processes it. Nonstop competition from the outer world grabs our attention. What should we do to find peace?
What happens when the input we receive daily is predominantly information filled with things that upset us, trouble us, or put us into states of fear?
The good news is that we have a choice about where to put our focus. We can decide whether to focus on what is negative or on what is positive. We have free will to determine what input we want to have flooding our being.
Place of Calm Within Us
One solution is to fill ourselves with the peace already within us. We have a place of calm inside us all the time. It is free from the problems and conflicts of the outer world. It is like a sea of tranquility that lies in the stillness within us. We can dip into those healing waters anytime we want through meditation.
Meditation allows us time each day to turn our attention away from the problems of the outer world to swim for a while in a sea of peace. We then experience moments of bliss, joy, and happiness.
Tap Into Peace within through Meditation
While we can balance our lives while being aware of what is happening in the world outside, and even do our best to help make it a better place, we can also tap into the peace within us through meditation. We can then flood our being with bliss and joy.
When we find our own inner tranquility, we then can be a source of calm that radiates to others, to make the outer world more peaceful.
When we focus on examining our thoughts, we need to evaluate what aspects of ourselves we want to cleanse. We need to understand what is cluttering our minds and hearts and keeping us from opening up to God’s love.
The secret to desires is that it is not the object we desire. It is the mind’s tendency to always be in a state of desire. It leads us into attachment to things of this world. It distracts us from the true purpose of our human life.
We can avoid much of the stress, anxiety, and tension that faces us at the mental level by learning the technique of meditation. Meditation is a way to relieve stress at the mental level and help us have a healthy mind. A healthy mind means that we can deal with the challenges of life in a calm, composed way without it causing us to feel upset, depressed, anxious, fearful, or threatened.
