What is inner peace? All of us have a picture in the back of our mind of what inner peace is. You have even been in this state many times, sometimes for moments even for hours and you know what inner peace feels like. We need to learn how to grow and create that feeling without being dependant on things turning out a certain way. We need to create inner peace as something we are able and be able to share and give it to others. We need to become in the center of our peace, radiating our souls light outward, instead of reacting, or waiting for situations, relationships a d events in your life to be arranged in such away that you have peace.
Inner peace is like being in the eye of a storm. All around you is craziness like rain, hail, and wind but in the eye of the storm it is calm and peaceful.
Creating inner peace from the higher levels is learning to open your heart. It means you are not focused or attached to an emotional level to th8ngs that happen in the world around you. You know who you are, and you let things flow around you without touching or affecting your sense of peace. Opening your heart means remaining one and loving no matter what another person does, no matter what occurs to you, what happens with your job. It means choosing to feel peaceful no matter what your outer life looks like. It is easy to be loving, the challenge is to be loving when those around you are closed, afraid, or negative.
Anything you are attached to or your must-have it a certain way, any belief or concept that is inflexible will be an area in which your inner peace can be affected. The goal is to take that sense of inner peace and affect everything in the outer world, touching it with energy.
Your body can be the receptacle of many thoughts that are not peaceful. If you can bring your body to a state of peace and rest, by relaxing it with physical touch or mental relaxation.
I can take a walk outdoors and see the beauty of the trees and the mountain, the skyline. Smelling the fresh air puts me at peace. Some people do breathing exercises or listen to relaxing music. Meditation tapes can do this as well.
You will begin to experience levels of inner peace down to feel inner peace. Start by finding a sense of peace within. Give yourself one opportunity in the next week to feel inner peace. I have had to put earphones in sometimes to remove the outward noises from others in my family will listening to relaxing music. The point is to do what you have to find that inner peace.
The value of inner peace certainly feels better to the emotional body but, it is more than that. It is the ability to affect the outer world and create and manifest from a focused place of purpose and an inner sense of who you are. When you are tranquil and calm, when you slow down and feel relaxed you are able to think at higher levels. What you bring forth from inner peace is for your higher good.
Plan your life from a sense of inner peace and operate from it. Before you speak, you bring in this sense of peace you will find the world-changing into a very different place.
One of my favorite verses in the Bible is in Romans 8:31: if God is for us who can be against us. I think of this verse often when I am getting out of my peaceful place.
Hold your head up high. You are a Child of the high God. Be at peace.
