Life can sometimes seem to act very chaotic when it is difficult to find balance. When as human beings, we are designed for and tend to live a serene life. Know one thing for sure if you cling to each and everything in life it’s going to hurt at the end of your journey.
But, if you live by non-attachment, you'll have easy lives and at the end of the day you will be able to let go without anything holding you back. Peace is priceless, but it comes free if one undergoes these simple practices.
Here are top 5 practices to help you now with that-
1. Change Your Perspective First
It always starts with a decision; a decision to change our conservative perspective is it. Our own perspectives that we have built up with time against us living in certain societies and within ourselves can cause us enough hardship.
Suppose, you were long planning a meeting with your besty, now calling your best friend for that meeting, but he refuses to meet you. Anyone would become upset, right?!! But if you change your perspective, you can let go of small wins for inner peace and compassion. You understand your friend with empathy, who could be in trouble and see It from a broader point of view.
2. Read Spiritual Masterpieces Such As The Holy Quran
Spiritual literature can be inspiring, and out of many, The Holy Quran is the most soothing. If you try to listen attentively to its holy verses, your constant mind-chattering can stop and you can dive into a completely different realm.
This is just one example, a suggestion, but there are other books out there as well that can help you in slowing down, too.
3. Reduce Self-Talk Instead Practice Silence
We often seem to indulge in conversation with and within ourselves. That eats a lot of energy, and we can start to feel tired. First, we need to stop that. We need to understand that thinking does not serve; what serves is the right decisions, and it can only emerge from silence.
So, we need to practice a no-mind state to cultivate silence that can serve us with success and inner peace as well. Insight is the key that can come if only when we notice our thoughts and be silent.
4. Take a Pause And See
When the mind is racing from one thought to another, it’s time to pause. Take a break. Normalize. Then you will see a change in your whole system instantly. You will feel more relaxed and calm. Everything can wait. You need to prioritize yourself to find your inner zen.
If you find yourself overthinking, be still for 15 to 20 seconds before starting something, then you will see magically it will break the loop of your ruminating thoughts and you will find much more peace within yourselves and it may eventually increase your focus and productivity.
5. Help Someone To Help Yourself
Be kind. Be kind. Be kind. Showing empathy towards ourselves and to others is a great way to feel calm within ourselves.
In life, if God blesses you, don’t forget to share a little bit with others; trust us it will not decrease you in anything, but it can increase your blessings.
In One Spiritual terms, it is also stated,
“Allah, the Exalted, says, 'Spend, O son of Adam, and I shall spend on you. '” – Prophet Muhammad, upon him be peace (Al-Bukhari and Muslim).
These can give much more happiness and inner peace.
“What you seek
is seeking you.”
Rumi or originally known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, was a 13th-century evergreen and ever-famous Persian poet, Islamic scholar, Sufi mystic and Hanafi faqih.
N.B. The world is within you, so first take care of yourself. Find peace within.
