“Listen to the inner light; it will guide you. Listen to inner peace; it will feed you. Listen to inner love; it will transform you, it will divinise you, it will immortalise you.”-Sri Chinmoy
One of the benefits of being in a peaceful state of mind is immunity, immunity to all the negativity and drama that plays out in life. It is like being at peace in the middle of a storm; nothing can touch your nirvana, with the mind at rest you live free. You are able to show up in life with a great big smile on your face being fully confident that no matter what happens you are ok because your happiness does not depend on the actions or reactions of others or life, the only power you have is over you and your mind. Establishing this sense of peace requires time, practice, and patience. Patience with the process, and patience with you, some habits are hard to break so you must have patience. Practice makes the master is how the saying goes, the more we practice peaceful states of being the more natural it becomes. We no longer need the stressful reactions to others’ mental drama. There is great victory in learning peace of mind; there is also this immense connection to the beauty of the world and all that it encompasses. The mysteries of life start unfolding and the secrets of the divine one unravel to you, its peaceful warrior.
The battle is worth it, fight for your freedom, fight for your liberty, you have the power to break through your mental chains of negativity and move into the light, move into liberty, move into the you which has always existed but was shadowed by doubt and fear. Know your truth and speak it, stand your ground and live free, true to yourself and your creator. You are worth it, the battle is worth it, but you have got to want it, own it, and know that it will set you free. Be beautiful, you are life, be love, we are one.
