IS THERE PEACE IN YOUR HEART?

Published 11/06/2013 by inspiringyourspirit

Peace: It’s in everyone’s heart!

Or is it?

When we are born, we are innocent, we are at peace, we are love, we are compassion, and there is no hate, no greed, no envy, and no spite, just PEACE.

So what goes wrong?

From day one we watch and learn.

The love and the peace slowly get’s knocked out of us by our parents, our siblings, our families, our friends, our teachers, our neighbors, our supervisors, our leaders, our peers, by our governments and society.

Deep down, Love and Peace is there; it is STILL in our hearts, we just need to go deep inside and find it and it can be done! We can be at peace with ourselves, with others and with the world.

So who am I to say anything about Peace and Love…Well I’m nobody, I’m just a man, a husband, a father, a friend, a business leader, a peer…someone who cares! Someone with passion, someone who wants to make a difference to this world, someone who wants to see this world change for the better, someone who wants to see peace in his lifetime, someone who wants to see smiles on peoples faces, someone who wants to see the end of famine, someone who wants to see the environment heal, someone who wants to swim in the ocean with out the fear of pollution, someone who wants to see the end to endless greed by the few at the expense of the many, someone who wants to see justice done to the so called leaders of this world who continue to take and give nothing in return……Where will it all end, and can I make a difference?

Lao Tzu shared these quotes with us and I think he any many other sage’s, God’s and Masters left us with words that we have forgotten, like we have forgotten that WE  STILL HAVE PEACE AND LOVE in our HEARTS:-

  • ‘The Journey of 1000 miles begins with the first step”
  • “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.”
  • “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
  • “The truth is not always beautiful, nor beautiful words the truth.”
  • “Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”“Be content with what you have;
  • “Rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”
  • “A man with outward courage dares to die; a man with inner courage dares to live.”
  • “Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habit. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.”
  • “At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.”

  • “If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”
  • “To lead people, walk beside them …As for the best leaders, the people do not notice their existence. The next best, the people honor and praise. The next, the people fear; and the next, the people hate …When the best leader’s work is done the people say,We did it ourselves!”
  • “I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.”
  • “Because of a great love, one is courageous.”
  • “Your own positive future begins in this moment. All you have is right now. Every goal is possible from here.”

  • “If you want to know me, look inside your heart.”

I just want to finish this short post with these words OF WISDOM…

“Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.”
Gautama Buddha

  • One more thing. Yogi society is a secret society, just like all the other secret societies. They don’t want to lose their teachings by sharing with the outside world. We, the other humans, would stop them from holding on to THEIR BELIEFS and SECRETS WHICH IS A VERY HUMAN AND EMOTIONAL THING TO DO even after all their years of practice and dedication, they can’t let go…they protect what is theirs…the thing that makes them different from us. Love, peace and all that. THAT is holding on to something, which is an emotion. Possession. They clutch at their beliefs and hold them in secret. The gentlemen who cut his hair and promised to stay in the world until he was 100 had a tell. Every time he was finished talking or unhappy with the question he leaned back in his chair and that was the end of that. Hmmmm….strange don’t you think? He dismissed the person asking questions. He was closed off and obviously uncomfortable. He was not used to being questioned…he was, however, used to being obeyed and treated with great respect, and was seemingly, put-off by what was going on. He is used to being treated as something special among his peers and students but that doesn’t transfer well to the rest of us. Secrets… And the young guy in the video who still has “desire,” said that maybe his training has not kicked in yet. Well, it’s hard to be something you’re not. Being human is what we all are and that comes with the build yourself a life kit. Sigh. All of this is silly and we just play different games. Peace out and hope whatever path you’re on gets you to where you think you want to end up.

  • i LOVE it, thank you, thank you for sharing, I know how much work went into this post. I am so glad I found this happy place. Peace ~ Namaste ~ and my favorite ~ Aham Bramasmi! I must re-blog or share… hope that’s OK..

  • Fantastic! You aren’t “nobody,” but a very significant “SOMEBODY.” I hope you don’t mind if I re-blog this. Let me know if you do, and I will remove it immediately. Namaste . . .
