Everyone has different definition of peace. People may define it as happiness, eternal love or state of joy. Whatever it is, it is like an analgesic that takes your pain away. It is a way to disconnect from the world and connect to your innerself.
Someone finds it in sharing, dancing, singing, loving, meditating, writing, reading, cooking or cherishing. It is like a multicolor painting, which is vivid and all the colors have their own beauty.
It is beautiful to see that people define it in their own way and find it in their own way too. So many emotions,so many moments, so many memories that we make or gather, that may lead us to different paths of life; towards a different perspective in our lives.
But only, who has struggled, worked very hard to get the peace and still hasn’t found it, is the one who knows the value of peace. He is the one who knows how precious is the peace. It is a feeling or a sensation that can be felt or experienced. One has to be very much at comfort level in spiritual way to find peace within oneself.
It is a state of eternal bliss. No one can take it away unless you decide to let it go. After all, it is our decision/ choice to let it go, to feel disturbed or unhappy when some external source or environment gets different.
So, at last we decide when to get affected or not by this external stimulus and leave our state of bliss.
While travelling to home yesterday, I saw an elder man in bus, who had a small music player in his hands. It has some music playing continously and he was singing along with the music in loud voice. While it was disturbing the passenger sitting next to him, many other passengers were enjoying the way in which he was singing. I was one of those many passengers too, who felt that his voice (although not very sweet), had some charismatic affect on other people or on their souls
When my destination arrived, I got down of the bus, but he was still there, singing and enjoying the music. I had felt certain kind of discomfort or sadness after leaving the bus, as if I was saying goodbye to someone very near to me. In a journey of few minutes, he made me feel so good with his songs that immediately after getting down the bus, my peace was gone. It had affected me so much. But who permitted that peace to disappear in reality? It was me, no one else or no other external factor can affect us, till we let it reach deep inside our soul to impact us. It happens when we try to find peace in some outer substance or situation.
Peace is found inside of human heart/ spirit. We just need to dig deep inside us to get to know ourselves, to get to talk to that little self that we have, in order to be at peace with ourselves. And that kind of peace when found is hard to be lost, because you become consicous of the peace that your soul has, you get to channelize that peace to rest of your atoms or cells of your body.
So, my dear friends, talk to yourself, you can go to a quite place if you want, where you can connect and listen to your innerself to get the answers to you queries, to feel calm and peace. Hoping you all a peaceful life!
