Peace of mind is not a goal I need to achieve. It’s a place inside I never want to leave. Close my eyes, I still my thoughts and then I say I will choose to live in peace today. – Robert Alan
It’s a choice to disengage from the energy of those around you, when the energy is not so positive.You can’t change the other person, you’ve got to change yourself. Either distance yourself from the situation or person, if harmful, or work on whatever it is that’s making you react within yourself. Still your thoughts, quiet your mind, let it be easy. In the long run, happiness, love, peace, never last from outside sources, but always comes from within. You have to be the one that makes you happy, you have to be the one that gives you peace.
Love yourself – Just a thought…
The mind does not shine by it’s own light it too is illuminated by the self. – 4.19 Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
Our mind is separate from our self. The self, cannot be changed from thinking it so, even though it is the beginning. The self is illuminated by more of a knowing – like our intuition. So tapping in to our true selves is the key, to illuminating ourselves from within.
Silence our minds, realize our true nature, surrender, and allow an easy way of being.
Just a thought…
To live happily is an inward power of the soul. Very little is needed to make a happy life. It’s all within yourself, in your way of thinking. When you rise in the morning, think of what a privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. You have the power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.
Thoughts today were all taken from the quotes of Marcus Aurelius.
LOVE for the POWER of your SOUL, Goldi
