Four peace mantras for the year 2018
A question that is often asked is whether we can make this world a more peaceful place. Yes, it is a possibility and all it requires is a little intention, attention and commitment to manifest it. Each one of us has the potential to create an oasis of assurance and security around. When people exercise this power to be beacons of peace, then it can create waves of positivity, joy and celebration across the planet.
The start of a year is the best time to make a new beginning. We need to shake off our despondency and look at life with renewed energy, zeal and enthusiasm. We need to have the right tools to be happier and spread it to people around us. Here are four simple and easy to follow mantras that can help us:
- Inner peace is the key to outer peace: Only a wealthy person can share wealth with others. Similarly, we need to recognise that a wealth of deep peace is within our own being. Usually, we expect the outer world – boss, spouse or anyone else – to behave in a certain way so that we feel peace inside. However, it is the other way around: the more we are connected to the peaceful core within, the more peace will manifest around. Our vibrations are more powerful than we think them to be and can even help influence others.
- Success is the by-product of inner peace: Peace is neither the mere absence of conflict nor is it about being passive and inactive. It is a bubbling positivity which brings about unending enthusiasm. It forms the foundation for being effective in the world around us. When the mind is quiet the intellect becomes sharp, emotions become light, behaviour becomes endearing and our life becomes a celebration. These are the manifestations of deep peace and are key ingredients for success. It is a state serene dynamism – calm on the inside, energetic on the outside!
