The Cultivation Of Inner Peace

“Peace can become a lens through which you see the world. Be it. Live it. Radiate it out. Peace is an inside job.” – Wayne Dyer

The ultimate power you may possess is control over the way in which you interpret the world around you. By taking control over your own perspective, you can frame even the most negative events through a positive lens and cultivate a robust state of inner peace, clarity and mental health in the process.

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.” – Saint Francis De Sales

In order to be content and satisfied throughout your life, it is paramount that you work to maintain a sense of calm in your pursuit of all things. If you find your inner peace shaken, take a step back and work to rediscover it. As true inner peace is a state of mind, a perspective that you cultivate, it can always be regained.

“Don’t search for anything except peace. Try to calm the mind. Everything else will come on its own.” – Baba Hari Das

In order to effectively conquer the obstacles you’ll face in life, you must first build a solid foundation of peace. When the bedrock of your being is composed, solidified and hardened against the outside world, unshakeable in it’s integrity, only then are you truly prepared to accomplish or obtain that which you desire. Your success in overcoming the challenges of the world at large is dependent on your ability to conquer the world within.

“Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.” – Mahatma Gandhi

If the external world has the power to shake your internal quietude, take note and reflect on this deeply. To truly be the master of your own perspective and gain a sense of real inner peace, you must strengthen your resiliency further, always working towards attaining an invincible, steadfast resolve. Do not despair if you find yourself upset by the difficulties in life, for any setback that hurts you is in fact an opportunity to grow stronger.
