Find Peace inside

"All spiritual disciplines are done with a view to still the mind. The perfectly still mind is universal spirit." – Swami Ramdas

Getting into the habit of meditating, praying and/or resting daily helps us pull back from our preoccupation with the material world. In silence and solitude, we have an opportunity to pay attention to what’s happening inside rather than outside.

When we do this consistently, we learn to relax and to quiet and detach from our mental chatter and our turbulent emotions. As we begin to witness ourselves in personality, we also begin to experience our soul.

"Meditation may require a lifetime to master, but it will have been a lifetime well spent. … If you want to judge your progress, ask yourself these questions: Am I more loving? Is my judgment sounder? Do I have more energy? Can my mind remain calm under provocation? Am I free from the conditioning of anger, fear, and greed? Spiritual awareness reveals itself as eloquently in character development and selfless action as in mystical states." – Eknath Easwaran

    If you want to know your own mind, there is only one way: to observe and recognise everything about it. – Thich Nhat Hanh

    Hi Kate,
     
    Again, a very interesting article on your page.
     
    It is true that Meditation may take a lifetime to master.
     
    From personal experience, I think also that a Person, once he or she decides to be good and do good to others, his actions will greatly help bring peace of mind to him or her, because there is no cause for his or her  morale barrier to tease and tear him or her.
     
    Take care,
    Judex.
