Life should be peaceful and sometimes it may seem tough to stay at peace. Its then you need different approaches that will help you regain your peaceful mind and need not to mention that meditation is one of them.
Take a holistic approach
In order to achieve true peace you need to respect the act of discipline, both during meditation and while at non-meditative state. It is necessary to refrain yourself from intoxicants or even try to kill a tiny insect. These practices may seem simple but they help you stay mindful. These small things will bring in changes that are worth mentioning in the long run.
It’s your choice, whether to control or peace
If you want to control everything you must be aware of the stress and anxiety that you go through. By doing meditation you can get peace at its best, your mind will be at rest and your soul controlled. Still it is necessary to understand that you should not try to control meditation, you will lose your peaceful mind.
It’s best that you take responsibility of what you can control without trying to control everything. If your mind is agitated it will not able to cope with things as your peaceful mind will.
It’s all about equilibrium
Two important thing in meditation is Sati that is awareness and Sabai that is physical and mental relaxation. It’s your task to maintain balance between the two as too much sati will make you eager and too much sabai you let you fall asleep. In life too, it is important to maintain a perfect balance between everything and stay peaceful.
You have the right to reset
You may be entangled with distracting thoughts and spending time on resisting them. Instead try to reset them and start afresh. You may be thinking that this way you will be starting from scratch but it will give you peace of mind. There may be some wrong decisions in life. Instead of living with them start new and leave them behind, life will be peaceful.
Keep an open mindand be innocent
Every experience is different be it of life or meditation. It’s true that you can prepare or practice something but you are not sure of the outcome. Thus, it is necessary that you maintain your innocent mind that will accept things openly.
What hurts most in life is the difference between your expectations and the behaviour from other people. If you can develop an innocent mind you will find that you can find life as it is and not the way you want it to be.
Practice beats theory on any given day
Just like anything else, in meditation too you will require constant practice. Maintaining act of discipline is good start but it is a start. In order to achieve peace and mindfulness you have to practice hard, really hard. Any expert be they from the field of politics, acting or athletes will let you know the endless hours they have spent for practicing.
