Peace

Wars start in the minds of men and thus surely peace must also start in the minds of men.

Over time we have cultivated a personality based on negative thoughts – anger, greed, jealousy, fear etc.. which have given birth to bad feeling in the hearts. The repetition of the same thoughts and feelings has created a habit and eventually this has become our very nature and personality.

Peace is a feeling, an experience in which there is the absence of all negative thoughts and feelings. We know that we cannot just remove all negativity from our hearts and minds. However what is required, and what is possible, is to replace them.

To develop a nature of being peaceful starts with the awareness. I have allowed many things to steal my peace by giving them more importance. Now I need to create an awareness that holds onto my peace. Things may have to be renounced: my ego, my pride, my preferences, my ideas etc..  But this is the price I must pay for peace.

The original and eternal nature of the soul is that of peace. It will not be satisfied until it returns to peace.

Cultivate your peace, nurture your peace, revive your peace.

Om Shanti
