Keep the Peace

June 11, 2022

When dealing with people who may bring turmoil into our lives, Sant Rajinder Singh Ji Maharaj reminded us that turmoil arises when things happen contrary to our expectations. The ability to successfully deal with such situations depends on how resilient we are and how well we acclimatize ourselves to what is happening around us.

It is easy to blame others for making us angry. But in truth, we should realize we are the only one in control of ourselves. No one else can make us angry. They can try, but eventually, it is within our control and up to us whether we become angry or not. We have the power to ignore others and remain calm and still. We can even douse the flames of the situation rather than worsen things, thereby keeping peace in our environment. Through meditation, we bring ourselves to a state where we can deal with all such situations calmly and peacefully.
