Words Of Wisdom About Peace
In today's hectic world, giving
peace seems to be a long lost wisdom. We've got to get ahead, we've got to
worry about what on the news and what's happening in the world, we've got to
struggle to keep sane and keep our balance. The circumstances of our lives
seem to cause stress and anxiety on a regular basis. Peace is a good idea,
sure, but in general we don't feel much of it.
Yet for all these reasons peace can be such a valuable addition to our daily
experience. Just a dash of peace a day can reduce stress and anxiety in our
lives. It can really make a big difference in helping us to relax and enjoy
the flow of life. Peace is a powerful resource we can bring to hectic
lives to add a lot more satisfaction and quality to our experience.

or at work at lunchtime.
Whatever thoughts you are having, you allow them. You don't try to change
them or make them different. Whatever emotions you are having, you allow
them. You peacefully remain with them. You don't try to have different
feelings. For at least three minutes, you practice giving your consciousness
some generous spaciousness. Whatever arises you allow it to be there without
struggle or effort.

are usually trying to resist or change our experience. We struggle with our
thoughts and emotions, trying to have good ones and get rid of bad ones. For

just breathe and notice and let things be okay just as they arise in your.
Give yourself a few minutes of peace a day and see what happens. If you want
to make the world a more peaceful place, start with yourself.
