I am at that point of life where I want to learn more and more!! Yes, since childhood I was eager to learn anything which seemed interesting to me but now I want to learn about life!! How to have inner peace and lead a peaceful life! Yes, now I realize the importance of learning about life. Usually we learn the basic subjects and major subjects to achieve something in life.!! But these subjects don’t teach us how to settle down our life mentally! When we face any kind of difficulties we feel hopeless and helpless! But then again, some of us overcome it with courage but unfortunately some of us can’t. For leading a peaceful life I apply some theories and I found out that yes these theories are really helpful if I apply them on daily basis.
Firstly, whenever anyone says anything negative to me about myself I don’t try to answer them boldly Because I know if I answer them then there will be chaos, exact opposite of peace which I am seeking. I try to take that as a compliment so that I can work on that and i try to see the positive side of that comment. And trust me I found that, it works like a magic. Yes for sure your positive growth will take place on that very comment and that person will also notice it. So just be calm and see the positive side.
Secondly, I peacefully try to avoid criticism about anyone. Because I know that if I say anything bad about someone this will come back to me. Which none of us want actually. Criticizing someone is something very dangerous. Rather than criticizing someone please appreciate him or her for his or her activities. I bet you will feel an inner peace throughout the whole process.
Thirdly, try to help and be there as much you can. Everyone doesn’t need you in their lives but those who need you even for a single minute, just be there and give your best. You can be the peace in their lives. Because you never know what future holds for you.
These simple things might look silly or negligible but actually they are not! All of them work like magic and by applying these theories I have seen a totally different life for myself. Which is really a positive thing for me and I think it might help others too. Everyday I feel so grateful that I am learning to lead life in this way which is really important for us to have a peaceful life because it gives you an inner peace!
